    In order to solve this you need to install WCF components. This is done with the ServiceModelReg tool (more information about the tool). Start a cmd-prompt in administrator mode and execute the following:

    Arvixe is a great web host, especially when it comes to features and price for their Windows / ASP.NET platform, which not many other hosting companies can offer at the same price.

    For today only they offer 50% off life-time for new hosting accounts. So if you're looking for a great host for your ASP.NET (or UNIX/PHP/WordPress or whatever you're into) then you should definitley check them out.

    My own experience has so far been great. I've contacted their "live chat" support one time, and they solved my rather technical problem instantly. Something I've not experienced with two many other budget web hosts I've come in contact with.
