Thanks for the link to DirectFlight.cs, I have downloaded it, you may remove it from your website if you wish.
You are right, this is not an accetpable situation, I have to be able to compile a .cs file using wsdl myself. I did pay very close attention, and using the Pause key and a lot of patience, have confirmed nothing else (no errors, warnings, anything) is posted in that pop-up command window, that shows up after running wsdl, after what I have in my screenshot above.
I have googled it to death, and have found nothing, either on wsdl not creating a file without giving any warnings, or on opening a separate cmd window to compile, which you report as being abnormal.
As I said previously, I am running Vista, so perhaps it has something dto do with that. Have you tried this in Vista?
Is there an alternative way to compile a .cs file without runnign wsdl? What about compiling a .cs in Visual Studio itself, the IDE, is that possible? I also saw you can add a Web Reference to a solution, in which case I was able to type the web address of your wsdl1.xml file, and it recognized it as a web service, but I don’t know if that is enough, without having a freshly compiled .cs
I am left wondering why this worked at first, and not anymore.
Finally, can you point me to a good reference to learn more about web services? I have found several on the web, but there are so many, so varied, that I am affraid I’ll confuse rather than educate myself.
Thanks once again,
