Cannot import wsdl:portType, wsdl:binding, wsdl:port

I am getting error while generating proxy for WCF using SVCUtil. Error is

Attempting to download metadata from 'net.pipe://localhost/WebServices/Mgmt.svc' using WS-Metadata Exchange. This URL does not support DISCO.
Error: Cannot import wsdl:portType
Detail: An exception was thrown while running a WSDL import extension: System.ServiceModel.Description.DataContractSerializerMessageContractImporter
Error: Referenced type 'SearchCriteria, Service.DataContracts, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null
t be used since it does not match imported DataContract. Need to exclude this type from referenced types.
XPath to Error Source: //wsdl:definitions[@targetNamespace='']/wsdl:portType[@name='IMgmt']

Error: Cannot import wsdl:binding
Detail: There was an error importing a wsdl:portType that the wsdl:binding is dependent on.

Error: Cannot import wsdl:port
Detail: There was an error importing a wsdl:binding that the wsdl:port is dependent on.

Generating files...
Warning: No code was generated.
If you were trying to generate a client, this could be because the metadata documents did not contain any valid contracts or services
or because all contracts/services were discovered to exist in /reference assemblies. Verify that you passed all the metadata documents to the tool.

Warning: If you would like to generate data contracts from schemas make sure to use the /dataContractOnly option.

Everything was working fine till I add a enum member in data contract.


Turned out to be, we are reusing DataContract while generating proxy & old DataContract dll was not replaced in location from where it is referenced.

Also get help from an response in question what-does-this-wcf-error-mean-custom-tool-warning-cannot-import-wsdlporttype?
