Bug in Visual Studio 2008 re. Service References​? RRS feed

    Has anyone come across this problem? I've been developing in VS2008 but have found that occasionally when I add a service reference for a WSDL url to a project and VS attempts to build the required supporting files, the Reference.vb file is created and generates many errors, most of which are

    "Public Property [X] has multiple definitions with identical signatures", and...

    "[X] is already declared as 'Private [X] As String' in this class"

    However when I use the same wsdl url to add a service reference in VS2010 the files are generated with no errors.

    We can use VS2010 as a last resort but we'd prefer to stick with VS2008. We've checked with the team that developed the WSDL's and they assure us that there are no errors in the WSDL's. Also, many other teams are able to access them using other platforms/techniques (not VS2008) so I tend to believe them. Does anyone know of a fix/workaround for this?
