Service has zero application (non-infrastructure) endpoints. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no service element matching the service name could be found in the configuration file, or because no endpoints were defined in the service element. This can happen if there is no proper endpoint configured for the service.

How to fix this 

  • Create at least one endpoint for the service.
  • If you are configuring endpoint using configuration file, then make sure you have your application configuration file in the output directory.
  • Give proper name for the service.

Possible problem for Service has zero application (non-infrastructure) endpoints exception.

Here if you are getting this exception after you have given proper endpoint, then the main culprit can be the name of the service.

The service name has to be the class name of the service. Give the fully qualified name of the class with namespace. If your class name is “Service” and is in namespace “WcfService” as shown below

namespace WcfService
    public class Service : IService


Then your service name has to be something as shown below.

<service name="WcfService.Service">
