An "exception is thrown" message appears when creating a WebService SMO via tester.


When creating a Webservice SMO the following exception appears:

"VALIDATIONInvalid WebService WSDL is thrown"

Troubleshooting Steps

When the above behavior occurs, run the WSDL through a validator just to verify WSDL is compatible with standards. An example of a validator is below is:

If all checks out with the validator, add the WSDL as a service reference via Visual Studio.

- Start a new console app

- Add the service reference

- Build.

The exception should point you in the right direction and the issue with WSDL should disappear.
