Consuming WCF by Windows Service


Hakan Ugur


I am trying to consume WCF from Windows Service. When I added WCF reference
to Window Service project as a service reference, everything seems fine. It
updated app.config file, added service reference etc. But, when I build the
Windows Service, it returns this compile error: The type name 'Service
Reference1' does not exist in the type AppScheduler.AppScheduler'. When I
clicked the error message it goes to Reference.cs file. When I do same
thing on Web project, it is working well. Any idea will be very helpful.

Go to the project properties and see the target framework. Some function will not work on Client Profiles. So change the framework non client profile and see.
