Updating Silverlight enabled WCF service cannot find System.Runtime.Serialization

I have a Silverlight Class Library that contains my objects.  I have added a reference to System.Runtime.Serialization to this project.  It's version 2.0.5.0, Runtime Version v2.0.50727, File version 4.0.50826.0.

My portal project contains a service that exposes the object in the class library.  

When I try to update the service reference in my Silverlight Application it gives me the following error:
Could not load file or assembly "System.Runtime.Serialization, Version 2.0.5.0 .... or one of it's dependencies.  The system cannot file the file specified.

It worked fine before I added the reference for System.Runtime.Serialization.  

My Portal project does not reference System.Runtime.Serialization, but other assemblies that are exposed by the same service due.  Some of them are not Silverlight class libraries so they reference the .Net Version 4.0.0.0 version.

How can I fix this error?

Hi,
Make sure you can view your service/wcf in browser.
It seems your service is not working properly.

Thanks

it is a general error particularly when you have converted from 3.5 to 4.0,
there is a workaround but it may not be proper way, just add System.Runtime.Serialization file in bin if it is not there.
hope it may work, if it also do not work then add System.Windows from silverlight in bin and then check
