I've exactly the same problem..

Any ideas?

It's an ASP.NET Web Service Application in VB.NET.

It doesn't work for a WCF Service Library in VB.NET too.

Hi bugmenot2,

Thanks for the information. I will do some testing on those project types.

Instead of using a BugMeNot account, it would be nice if you created a CodePlex account to use when participating in the forum.

I have tested both those project types and did not have any problems with a .cs file being generated. Even when I specified a file name with with a .cs extension, the generated files still had the extension replaced to .vb as expected.

Regardless, there is a new Work Item in the Issue Tracker for this:

Could you please jump there and attach a sample project file that reproduces the problem?
