Using SvcUtil to generate WCF service proxy files

There was something I was not grokking about creating a proxy file from a WCF service that could then be used in the client app. I didn’t know what to tell the svcutil.exe tool to build the proxy from. Finally it dawned on me. I needed to have the service running and then point to it’s endpoint. Then svcutil was able to find the service and create the proxy. This may have been a problem for me because I am so used to using VS add web service for proxy creation.

I still have a little more work to do to get this client/service Indigo app running…
