Sitecore Rewrite Module prevents executing ASP.NET Web Service calls

  • Accessing ASP.NET web services running in the context of a Sitecore CMS application using URLs like “/TestWebService.asmx/js” may fail with the following server error:

    System.InvalidOperationException: No web service found at: /TestWebService.asmx/js
    1. Copy the Sitecore.Support.358242.dll file to the '/bin' folder of your solution.
    2. In the web.config file, replace both occurrences of the line:
      <add type="Sitecore.Web.RewriteModule, Sitecore.Kernel" name="SitecoreRewriteModule" />
      with:
      <add type="Sitecore.Support.Web.RewriteModule, Sitecore.Support.358242" name="SitecoreRewriteModule" />
