Hi there,
 
I'm working on a project in which i connect my programs to a web service to get and insert data. When i tried to add the Service Reference of that Service, following error came:
 
The document at the url https://exdev.www.property24.com/Services/P24ListingService19.asmx was not recognized as a known document type.
The error message from each known type may help you fix the problem:
- Report from 'XML Schema' is 'The root element of a W3C XML Schema should be <schema> and its namespace should be 'http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema'.'.
- Report from 'DISCO Document' is 'Discovery document at the URL https://exdev.www.property24.com/Services/P24ListingService19.asmx could not be found.'.
  - The document format is not recognized (the content type is 'application/xhtml+xml; charset=utf-8').
- Report from 'WSDL Document' is 'There is an error in XML document (3, 2).'.
  - <html xmlns=''> was not expected.
Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'https://exdev.www.property24.com/Services/P24ListingService19.asmx'.
Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'https://exdev.www.property24.com/Services/P24ListingService19.asmx'.
If the service is defined in the current solution, try building the solution and adding the service reference again.

 
Service can be found at: https://exdev.www.property24.com/Services/P24ListingService19.asmx?wsdl[^]
 
and one can browse this URL. I have no idea why this error is coming.
Any help would be great !

Works perfect for me. I added this service reference and generated the proxies successfully. I think you should try again. Sometimes the connection breaks inn between leading to such errors
