I use Visual Studio 2015 on a Windows 10 Pro x64 ( Build 14393.351) and, when I try to add an ASMX service reference in a PLC project ( notice that I removed Win Phone 8.1 compatibility from PCL project and I don't have a Win Phone 8.1 project in solution), Visual studio going to crash during generation of service references client code and, after restart it, the service references aren't present in the project and in the Service Reference folder the file Reference.cs is missing. I've tried to add the same service reference in a simple console application and the the process finished correctly.
For example, I've created a test solution with the only PCL project ( no Android/iOS/Win project in this solution) and I've tried to add ( after removing support for WinPhone 8 compatibility in PCL project) a service reference to this ws: http://www.w3schools.com/xml/tempconvert.asmx but VS going to crash every time i make this. I've attached some screenshot about this.
Notice that I also tried on another pc with similar configuration (Visual Studio 2015 Pro on Win 10 Enterprise x64) and I have encountred the same issue.
I'm very afraid about this situation, anyone can help me or know a workaround for this problem?
Thank's in advance
