This operation is not supported for a relative URI wcf reference in Silverlight


Oops! That was a surprise when I added a WCF RIA services to my Silverlight application.

“This operation is not supported for a relative URI”

SL_ServiceReferenceError_Wcf

Well. Nothing to Panic. It’s a known issue in Visual Studio 2010, when you try to add a Service Reference in a Silverlight project. Simply Ignore it, your service will be added successfully.

Thanks.
