Adding a service reference

Post by CWhiting » Fri May 17, 2019 10:51 pm

I have an API that I would like to include in a Ranorex project. When I enter the Address and click Go, I get error messages:
There was an error downloading 'http://nn.nn.nn.nn:8010/mex'.
Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'http://nn.nn.nn.nn:8010/mex'.
Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'http://nn.nn.nn.nn:8010/mex/mex'.

I have VS2017 on the same machine and I created a new project and did an Add service reference with the same address, it locates the service and responds as expected. I am able to write code in VS2017 that uses the service.

As a test I manually used the svcUtil to access the metadata on the same service which was successful.

I also set the Ranorex Service Reference SvcUtil configuration to the path to the svcUtil that I used manually and to an older version. The response remained the same as shown above. Is there some other setting I am missing? What is up?
