Custom tool error: Failed to generate dataset. Undefined data type: 'anyType'.

P: n/a
Did anyone got error like that?

When I'm trying to Update WebReference in my project this is an error I'm
getting "Custom tool error: Failed to generate dataset. Undefined data
type: 'anyType'."
The anyType is really a GUID. The problem is its working fine on my friends
computer (they get string insted of anyType) and it complies fine. I even
tried to reinstall VS.NET 2003 but no positive result.
Does anyone had that problem before?

Thanks

Sebastian

Could you post the Service description (wsdl) you use to generate the proxy?
I see that you are using Update Web Reference feature of VS.NET 2003, you
can try to troubleshoot using .net Framework directly
1. Run disco.exe tool with the URL to the web service
disco.exe http://someting/something.asmx
2. Run wsdl.exe on the file created by the disco.exe (results.discomap)
