Default Unable to generate the wsdl via svcutil


Page 37 have us run the svcutil to generate the 3 files (tempuri.org.wsdl, temputi.org.xsd, and the schema for simple .net types).

I tried running the utility but got me an error saying it cannot generate the wsdl as I have no access to c:\tempuri.org.wsdl...

I tried using the out parameter to tell it to generated on a new folder I created and this time it said Warning: Cannot generate XmlSerializer for assembly x. No service contract in the assembly has an operation with XmlSerializerOperation Behavior, which is true given that all we have written so far is

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.ServiceModel;

namespace Wrox.CarRentalService.Contracts
public interface ICarRentalService
double CalculatePrice(DateTime pickupDate, DateTime returnDate,
string pickupLocation, string vehiclePreference);

I am indeed new to WCF!

Any ideas as to how I go about using the svcutil? I even copied it directly to the c drive as its location plus the location of the .dll I created are long names.

I appreciate any feedback as I like to understand as I go along, but understand how it works and will continue with the reading for now.

Thanks in advance!

Hi ptiiCarlos,

I've tried exactly the same command (svcutil Wrox.CarRentalService.Contracts.dll) and it works. Are you using additional parameters like /t:XmlSerializer? Post the complete command line are you using.
Try to copy the .dll file in a temp folder, like c:\Temp, and then run the command from this folder.

Default It worked! Thanks.

Hi Fabio,

Indeed, when I copied the SvcUtil.exe and the .dll to a temp folder, changed my directory to it, and ran the utility from there inside the dos window, it created the three files as the book says!

Thank you so much for such a quick response, I really appreciate it!
