i have created web services when i am trying to add service refrence into project that time i am getting following error

The HTML document does not contain Web service discovery information.
Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'http://localhost/SecureDox/Scribe/SxFlowWebServices.asmx'.
The content type text/html; charset=utf-8 of the response message does not match the content type of the binding (application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8). If using a custom encoder, be sure that the IsContentTypeSupported method is implemented properly. The first 1024 bytes of the response were: '

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="">

        (function (l, f) {
            function m() { var a = e.elements; return "string" == typeof a ? a.split(" ") : a } function i(a) { var b = n[a[o]]; b || (b = {}, h++, a[o] = h, n[h] = b); return b } function p(a, b, c) { b || (b = f); if (g) return b.createElement(a); c || (c = i(b)); b = c.cache[a] ? c.cache[a].cloneNode() : r.test(a) ? (c.cache[a] = c.createElem(a)).cloneNode() : c.createElem(a); return b.canHaveChildren && !s.test(a) ? c.frag.appendChild(b) : b } function t(a, b) {
                if (!'.
If the service is defined in the current solution, try building the solution and adding the service reference again.

In the header of Web.config file.

Be sure that begin with:

It Appear that the response is trying to match with your encoding wrote in your App/webb.

please review if your project is over ISO-8859-1 encoding or UTF-8

check if the WSDL show you this encoding
Collapse | Copy Code


Other way could be that the Web service App.. is not Configured Properly
