Importer Fails: Internal 500 Error

Aug 9, 2010 at 12:32 PM
Everytime I try to import, it fails after trying to connect to my SharePoint site. I have tried running it on multiple different servers in the organization including the SharePoint server. Here is the event displayed in the event log: WebHost failed to process a request. Sender Information: System.ServiceModel.ServiceHostingEnvironment+HostingManager/23085090 Exception: System.ServiceModel.ServiceActivationException: The service '/_vti_bin/client.svc' cannot be activated due to an exception during compilation.

I don't see immediately what the cause could be. Can you access the service through the browser? Is this using SharePoint RTM?

Sorry Melg, I never received the email that you replied to this.


I ended up having to manually upload the files, but would like to see this working in the future.


I am using SharePoint RTM and can access it through the browser. 

I did notice that I am still getting this error even though I've not tried the tool since the 9th. I believe it may be related to some other issues on the server. I cannot even open the site in SharePoint designer 2010 now, though I could before.
