    Even if the geoprocessing service only contains one task, the task must still be selected in the Task Configuration dialog box.

  6. Click OK on the Task Configuration dialog.
  7. Click Finish to complete the creation of the Web application. In the newly edited Web application, start the geoprocessing task from the Tasks panel.
