Just posting this as I ran into it after installing Workflow Manager Server onto a 64bit Windows 2008 R2 box.

I went to my wmrest endpoint e.g.
http://myserver/wmrest/services/JTXSO/WMServer (where JTXSO is the name of my server object)

I got the error
Server Error in '/' Application.
Could not load file or assembly 'ESRI.Solutions.WMServer.Handlers' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

After applying the changes in here and here, and changing the Classic .NET AppPool Managed Pipeline Mode to Integrated, I still needed one extra change.

My wmrest folder needed to be converted to an application. Apparently the install should have done this; it didn't (no idea why not, I was admin, only other software on the box was ArcGIS).
