When using an ArcIMS Image Service in the .Net version of the Web Mapping Application, the following error displays:
"There was an error reading the SERVICE_INFO response".
There is likely an invalid attribute value in the map configuration file. The error message may display even if the service works correctly in other clients. The .Net ADF is much more strict when parsing ArcXML than the Java ADF, ArcMap, or the HTML Viewer. Therefore, it is possible for services to run correctly everywhere except with .Net.
The most common reason for this error is that one or more attribute values in the map configuration file needs to be a whole number such as "1" or "2"; no decimal point. They can't be a decimal value like "1.5". Some tags and attributes that are affected by this are:
HASHLINESYMBOL linethickness, tickthickness, width
<SIMPLELINESYMBOL width="1.5" color="255,0,0" />
<SIMPLELINESYMBOL width="1" color="255,0,0" />
