You need a path to a local copy of the wsdl file itself or a URL. Can you browse to http://localhost/WebService1/MyWebService.asmx from your browser successfully? If not then either IIS isn't running or something else is wrong. Once you have fixed this the providing the URL http://localhost/WebService1/MyWebService.asmx?WSDL to wsdl.exe should work.
