Create Proxy Class for Windows Service

I have created a windows service that converts files on my server.  I would like to create a proxy class so this can be called from my client machines.  

I am a little confused as to what to do when the svcutil.exe asks a base address, as my service sits on the c:\drive

Thanks

I have a windows service...the web service uses a DLL that calls a windows service.

Q1: What kind of windows service is this? A WCF windows service?
If it is then you just need to instance a client and call the appropiate contract methods.

Q2: What do you mean by "the web service uses a DLL that calls a windows service"? Is there a DLL doing the job of the proxy you need?
If that is the case you just need to go to your web service and refactor the code that interacts to the dll in a new class and use it in your target code.

I tried generating WSDL & XSDs first for the service-contract interfaces using svcutil.exe:
I ran the following:

Svcutil.exe "http://localhost:8731/Myservice" /target:metadata

It produced 4 files:
Myservice.xsd
schemas.microsoft.com.2003.10.serialization.xsd
tempuri.org.wsdl
tempura.org.xsd

I then tried to generate the proxy class based on WSDL & XSDs using the following command:

svcutil "http://localhost:8731/Myservice/" /Language=vb /t:Code /out:MyServiceProxy.vb /config:MyServiceProxy.config

It seems to time out.

Am I doing anything wrong?











Generate actual proxy class/es based on WSDL & XSDs generated using svcutil tool

You do not need svc utils, check "Creating a Client to Consume Service" section at:
http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/42643/Creating-and-Consuming-Your-First-WCF-Service
The sample is using an asp.net web site, but  you can use for any project as the key idea is to add a service reference. (Step 3 ) and the sample code (step 4) can go in a button event handler of a win form app.

If steps above fail, then your server is not setup correctly look at the sample server code to have similar configuration entries. If further help required, please post your WCF service code/project specifying which VS version is using.
