What you did so far is good, there is one more step needed. Start a new Ajax project, and examine carefully it's web.config. Compare it with your one and add sections (in appropriate places) related to ajax.

Converting a nonAJAX-enabled web site to an AJAX-enabled web site
I've discovered some great AJAX tools I'd like to use in a web site I'm building, but the problem is, I did not start this project as an AJAX-enabled site. Unfortunately, I've got roughly 100 hours into this site and don't want to scrap the entire project and start fresh.  Is there a way to "convert" my existing ASP.NET site into an AJAX-enabled site to utilize the AJAX toolkit?  BTW... I'm using Visual Studio 2005 and all pages are in VB.  Once you install ajax extensions for vs 2005, you should get the  option to create a new projec...

Ajax-Enabled Web Site vs Ajax Control Toolkit Web Site

Converting Web Site to Web Application (AJAX web service goes missing)
I have just completed (almost) an exercise to convert a web site to a web app (acedemic reasons - just to see the differences).A few bumps on the road such as copying class files to the new solution and wondering for a while why the classes did not show up.  It was because the properties for the class file were "content" rather than "compile".  Also copied all my images to a newly created image folder outside the IDE.  There is no context menu item to refresh a folder in the Web App so it was out of the car and back in to fix that.One problem remains. ...

Ajax Control Toolkit vs. Ajax Enabled Web Site Template
Hi, After installed the Ajax extension, we have Ajax Enabled Web Site template in our Visual Studio, after installed the Control Toolkit extension, we have another Control Toolkit template, what is the difference of these two template? I can't figure out the different since both works for me.

Ajax error calling Web Service from Web Application Project vs Web Site
I am implementing the code from the Asp.Net Ajax Video Demo “How Do I: Make Client-Side Network Callbacks with ASP.NET AJAX?”  The Web page is generating a javascript error (‘SimpleService’ is undefined) and is unable to recognize the Web service.  The downloaded examples work, however I have created the Demo (both the page and the web service) in a Web Application Project, rather than a Web Site.  The demo uses a Web site.  Because of this the page does not recognize the Web service. To ask the question another way: What needs to be done differently in a Web Service...

The web site suggestions when you start to type in a web site are no where near what the web site is that I want to go to.
Name: Zachary Product: Firefox Release Candidate Summary: The web site suggestions when you start to type in a web site are no where near what the web site is that I want to go to. Comments: The web site suggestions are not even close to the web site I want to go to. In Firefox 2 the web site suggestions were perfect, where when you started to type in a web site the web site that you wanted came up in the suggestions if you've been to that web site before. But now in Firefox 3 it also goes by the web sites heading which I don't like. For example, if I wanted to go to fa...
