Web Service Not Generating, Axis version: 1.2.1, .NET 4.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've spent a few hours trying to get this web service to work in my project. I've tried unchecking "Reuse types in referenced assemblies", with no luck. 

    This is the output from svcutil:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bin>svcutil /t:code http://ServerName/
    SpecWebService/services/SpecWebService?wsdl /d:test

    Attempting to download metadata from 'http://ServerName/SpecWebService/services/Spec
    WebService?wsdl' using WS-Metadata Exchange or DISCO.

  • Hi JBRAUK,

    According to this issue , I'd like to suggest you to remove the reference and add it again after adding service reference.

    When you add a service reference, there are two ways the types that are used by the service can be handled:
    •The types are stored in a dll, and that dll is referenced from both the client and the server application.
    •The types are not in a dll referenced by the client. In that case the tool that creates the service reference, will create the types in the references.cs file.

    There are many things that can go wrong. We have found that if the tool crashes, it is sometimes faster to delete the service reference and start again.

    For more information,please refer to the following link:

    I hope that will be helpful to you.

    Best Regards,

    Tracy Dj
