webservice and scheduled task

I've got a webservice which doesn't return anything (i.e. it's a sub and not a function)
This is all setup in a website

I want to create a console application so i can setup a scheduled task to hit the webservice every minute.

I'm guessing how to do this, this is how far i've got:

I've created a new console application, and added a service reference to the DEV url of the webservice (its not live yet) - it asked me to give it a namespace, so i called it bob

its added a file called module1.vb, however, on it doesn't list my sub
i.e. bob.runimport
however, it does have the helloworld option i.e.

i'm guessing this is because mine is a sub, and hello world is  function?

also, when i tried to publish it, it said it would create an install file, i thought it would just create an EXE file?
