I have built a very simple Soap Web Server service using delphi as well as having installed IIS-7 on my local machine running Windows 7 Professional.
I placed my Soap executable file in the inetpub/wwwroot/ directory. When I go to the address "http://localhost/SoapAttempt.exe" my browser tries to download the file instead of running it.
I imagine I need to set something up in IIS. What do I need to do to get this to run instead of downloading?
I am following this tutorial http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/Delphi-Kylix/Building-a-Web-Service-from-Scratch-with-Delphi/ and on the third page is where it instructs to compile the executable and place it in the directory. Then it says to open it from a web browser and upon doing that the tutorial shows it displaying a page with information about the soap server that you can use to build clients but all I get is it downloading the exe. So I am missing a step of something is not setup correctly.
NOTE: The tutorial says place the executable in the wwwroot/cgi-bin directory but I have tried both the above and this directory and both have the same outcome.
