Problems connecting to my Application Catalog in Software Center

Recommended Posts



I've got a problem trying to view my Application Catalog.


I open Software Center and click on find an application from the application catalog.


I get the silverlight display come up and then for a brief moment it works.


Then it gives me an error message saying:


Cannot connect to the application server.


What could be causing this?


Have you ever seen anything like it.

You need to activate WCF for .Net 4.5 when using Windows Server 2012 and IIS8.0


And enable .net 3.5 to co exist on the Server.


Then I removed and re-installed the Application Catlog and Application Catalog Web Service Point roles.
