Just installed VS 2010 Beta 2 Ultimate and I'm attempting to add a web reference per documentation here

Add Web Refernce is not an option in the context menu. How do I go about adding a Web Reference?

I confirm that the workaround found there: http://blogs.msdn.com/kaevans/archive/2008/03/18/where-the-heck-is-add-web-reference-in-visual-studio-2008.aspx works.

Not really easy to find per se but at least it's still there.

The 'solution' in the blog post is only for VS2008 - this option does not seem to be available in VS2010.

Thank you for reporting this. Add Web Reference is now replaced by a more widely applicable Add Service Reference. However the Add Service Reference does have an entry point to the old web reference dialog.
