Svcutil.exe crashing in VS 2008 BETA 2
while experimenting with VS 2008 Beta 2 and WCF, i cudn't generate the client proxy using svcutil.exe. I built the server as a WPF application and hosted the service there (self-host). i was using netTcp binding for the service.
in preparation to get the client working, i created a new IIS application and created a directory under the main directory called App_Code. I copied all the code for Service and the Contract in the App_Code directory so that it be JIT compiled before use. Added the service.svc and web.config to the application. Then browsing to the URL gave me the test page.
then svcutil.exe was to be used but it kept crashing. a live search got me to this page: http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/bursteg/archive/2007/07/27/WCF-Test-Client-svcutil.aspx
and that did it!
