Problem with WSDL being consumed by SOAP in VB.NET

Hello,

I am working on a vb.net project that communicates with the Magento SOAP API v2.
We have been utilizing the API fine, however a new extension was installed on the Magento server which altered the WSDL we had previously consumed.  After the change, we successfully imported the new WSDL, though now it fails during initialization with the error message:

The XML element 'giftcardUpdateResponseParam' from namespace 'urn:Magento' references a method and a type.
Change the method's message name using WebMethodAttribute or change the type's root element using the XmlRootAttribute.


After googling for a bit, it seems this response is common if there are conflicts in the object names.  Reference:

The WSDL we are working with can be found here: http://magento19.blackbaudpos.com/index.php/api/v2_soap?wsdl=1

Can anyone help identify the problem and provide a solution so that this WSDL can be imported into VB.NET and the objects created in the reference.vb can be initiated properly?

Thank you.
