can't consume wcf data service any more suddenly. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a winform application consuming wcf data services.

    It works well for almost 5 months already.

    today when I click update service reference. error pop up as following:

    (I can still browse metadata of my wcf service in browser)

    The document at the url was not recognized as a known document type.
    The error message from each known type may help you fix the problem:
    - Report from 'XML Schema' is 'The root element of a W3C XML Schema should be <schema> and its namespace should be ''.'.
    - Report from 'DISCO Document' is 'Discovery document at the URL could not be found.'.
      - The document format is not recognized.
    - Report from 'WSDL Document' is 'There is an error in XML document (1, 40).'.
      - <service xmlns=''> was not expected.
    Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: ''.
    The remote server returned an unexpected response: (405) Method Not Allowed.
    The remote server returned an error: (405) Method Not Allowed.
    If the service is defined in the current solution, try building the solution and adding the service reference again.
