During my time I have created and consumed numerous web services. There are quite a few good guides out there such this MSDN article but the one thing I always forget is where to run the disco tool from to generate the WSDL and Disco aspx pages.
The funny thing is there is a few different places you can find this tool they are:
- In the Microsoft SDKs folder in Program files, usually in the bin folder. At the time of writing this I am using Windows Server 2008 and there are two options either v6.0A or V7.0A and in my case disco.exe is in the bin folder of V7.0A.
- This can also be accomplished using the Visual Studio command prompt. Simply open it and type disco and you will be asked for the appropriate options.
- I have also found on some servers there is also a copy at C:\windows\Microsoft .NET\Framework\Verisonx.x.x.x\ although this is not always the case. This could have been added when additional software has already been installed.
Regardless of how often I have done this I still always forget so hopefully this will help me remember but also help anyone else who is also as forgetful as me
