A new dialogue box appears, don't touch any settings and just click the Add Web Reference button under Compability.
When the new window opens, put the url to the service you want to use in the URL input box at the top, then click the little arrow to the right. This will get the methods, you will see it comes back as a web site. Then set the Web Reference name to something suitable, Click Add Reference.
Thats it, you should now see the reference in the folder Web References.
