Okay, I’ve not blogged for a while and this was mainly due to being subjected to SharePoint 2007 development once again.  However, I’m now into the land of SharePoint 2013 and I’ve no doubt I will be actively posting once more as I discover various nuances of the new environment.

So, here’s my first, which was a bit of a head scratcher!! After creating a custom list, I tried to add a new list item and received the following unhelpful error.

After a bit of Google-ing as few fixes were suggested, but none of which seemed like a viable solution. For reference, so you don’t go down same route, these were :

  • Enable Anonymous access
  • Restart the SharePoint Search Host Controller  service
  • Lack of RAM

None of these work, so don’t even try.

Next step, was to go to the logs where I found a call was being made to the /_vti_bin/client.svc/ProcessQuery

However, on opening the WCF service in the browser I received the following 500 error  “Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object” which lead me the eventual problem.

My web.config didn’t have a serviceHostingEnvironment element.  Adding the following to the <system.serviceModel> section resolved the issue

Service Hosting Element
  1. <serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true"/>

However, you may have the following already in your config

Wrong Service Hosting Environ
  1.  
  2. <serviceHostingEnvironment multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true"/>

If you remove  multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true"  it should work

Hope this helps you save a few hours
