Question / Problem:

Completing the initial installation and configuration of KAFC, which includes the first launching of the ..\Insight\Admin view, an error message is received:

The content type text/html; charset=utf-8 of the response message does not match the
content type of the binding (text/xml; charset=utf-8). If using a custom encoder, be
sure that the IsContentTypeSupported method is implemented properly. The first 1024
bytes of the response were: '<!DOCTYPE html>< html> <head> <title>Could not load file
or assembly 'Microsoft.Web.Administration, Version=7.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.</title>

The error message relates to the Static Content IIS feature, which needs to be enabled from the machine's Control Panel, as follows:

  1. Navigate to: Control Panel - Programs and Features.
  2. Select: Turn Windows Features on or off
  3. Expand: Internet Information Services; World Wide Web Services; Common HTTP Features
  4. Check: Static Content & OK

A window advising of the selected feature installation will result.
Executing IISRESET from an elevated command prompt may be necessary after adding the Static Content feature.
