Thank you.

Yes. You can see it from posted log file: Windows NT 6.0

Some of customers have windows servers.
If some servers are using IIS  and some are using Mono I need to support two
different platforms.

So my idea is to use single platform, Mono in all servers.

Is this reasonable or should I learn and use IIS+.NET  in Windows?

I got the following reply from windows mod_mono  author, Angel Marin:

"mod_mono binary is not updated to run with mono svn. I'm surprised that
it even works, mod_mono protocol is bound to particular mono releases.
You'll probably need a binary that matches the svn revision of your mono

Webservices have had issues when going through mod_mono on windows,
though not sure if they work reliably now, haven't tested them lately"

Will Apache+mod_mono run OK in older windwses than Vista ?

Is it reasonable to use XSP instead mod_mono to run asmx web service in
Windows production servers ?
Can you make mod_mono in SVN to compile for Windows also by including 
Angel's patch ?

Which is the stable configuration to run Mono asmx web service in
windows in production server ?
