Error: “The document specification ‘...’ from assembly ‘...’ failed to load.”

Moving the original post
In BizTalk server 2010 I published an orchestration as WCF service using the ‘BizTalk WCF Service Publishing Wizard’. The orchestration gets published successfully. After configuring and starting the orchestration when trying to consume the WCF service, I was getting following errors:
In the client code consuming the WCF service exception was
The server was unable to process the request due to an internal error.  …
In the event log on the BizTalk machine:


There was a failure executing the receive pipeline: "Microsoft.BizTalk.DefaultPipelines.XMLReceive, Microsoft.BizTalk.DefaultPipelines, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" Source: "XML disassembler" Receive Port:
The document specification ‘..’  from assembly ‘..’ failed to load. Verify the schema for this document specification is deployed and is in the Global Assembly Cache.


The adapter "WCF-WSHttp" raised an error message. Details "System.TimeoutException: The service's security session did not receive a 'close' message from the client within the configured timeout (00:00:10)….
I verified that the assembly containing schema was deployed to GAC and I was facing the same issue after increasing the timeout value for Open,Send and Close for WS-Http receive location.


Based on the error received in the client code I tried to investigate the WCF service deployment in IIS 7. The actual problem was the application pool used for WCF service was using .Net Framework v2.0.50727 after changing it to v4.0.30319 the issue got resolved. This issue occur because the path of GAC has been changed in the .Net Framework 4.0.

Great! Looking at the wcf service config it referenced 2.0 service dll's and assumed the app pool needs to be 2.0 and was breaking my head trying to resolve this very same issue. this helped immensly. Thx!
