Error while adding a web service reference in Silverlight application

♥…ЯҠ…♥ asked:

Open original thread
Hi friends,

I try to add a web service in my application, application is based on silverlight.
Where the web service and the application resides in the same solution. Where the reference is already added in the application. When i try to update the reference in the solution, i get the following error.
Could not resolve mscorlib for target framework 'Silverlight,Version=v4.0'. This can happen if the target framework is not installed or if the framework moniker is incorrectly formatted.
Service reference works perfectly in the web project, when i try to add or update the service reference from the web project to the silverlight application, am facing the error.

My silverlight version is >4.
udpated to 5 it seems.

I did change the pathname for the service file(which should not exceed some 259 characters or something referenced in some blog), it gives no joy to me.

So please help me ASAP.
Thanks in advance.
