WCF class library project reference to universal windows class library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello guys!

    Not sure that I ask the question in the right forum, so sorry if is not fitting here.

    I have in my solution 3 projects:

    - an universal windows class library

    - a wcf service library

    - an universal windows app

    I'm trying to add reference from wcf to class library. Each time I get the error: Unable to add reference to project "ClassLibrary".

    I have no idea why... Does anyone know why?

  • Hi Stefi Pallo,

    Could you tell me why you need to add the wcf service library to the universal windows class library? You can try to add the wcf service library to a host application service, then add the service reference to the UWP class library. Note that your service and UWP should in the same device.

    Best regards,
