Silverlight Beta 2 Service reference woes

by edsilverton

When trying to add a Web Service reference to a Silverlight App in VS 2008 with Silverlight Tools Beta 2 installed I kept getting the really useful message “Object reference not set to an instance of an object”. Luckily this guy has the answer. Normally I try to avoid messing with program files but I thought I’d risk it and it’s worked a treat. Not only that but now VS doesn’t crash every time I close it down. Found via Tim Heuer’s blog.
