I have a WCF service that was written in VS2010, it includes the following interface:

bool WriteToLog(Exception ex, gdAccountsPayable.LoggingLevels Log4NetLevel);

When I open the project in VS2012, I cannot refresh the service reference. If I remove this inteface item, then the service references are generated correctly.

If I open the project in VS2010, the references are refreshed correctly.

What has changed in VS2012 to cause this bug?
