Wcf – “The current configuration system does not support user-scoped settings”

asp.netwcf

We're getting a "The current configuration system does not support user-scoped settings" compilation exception being thrown when navigating to a WCF service on our staging server.

We're getting this exception through the app consuming the WCF service and when we navigate to the .svc test page directly.

This works fine on our test servers – and the websites are setup in the same way (in IIS, in the filesystem etc. etc.).

Does anybody have an idea of what this would be?
