Cannot access the WSDL or the WSDL file is invalid


I've just installed Powerbuilder Classic 12.5.2 build 5703 on Windows 10 computer.

PowerBuilder installs and runs just fine.

But when I try to deploy a webservice from a WSDL file, I get this message:

"Cannot access the WSDL or the WSDL file is invalid".

Any good ideas on how to make this work?

I used the standalone installers GRMSDK_EN_DVD.iso (32bit) and GRMSDKX_EN_DVD.iso (64 bit) downloaded from the Microsoft site ( and got the message shown above.

I guess the SDK setup will install the framework if it is not already installed. Otherwise it will show the message shown above if the framework installed is of a different version than the one needed. But Windows will not let me uninstall the current version because it is part of the operating system. So I was in a deadlock.

The point is we are trying to install an old development product that depends on the .net framework for certain features, on a new operating system that uses an upgraded framework. So the safest thing to do is to upgrade to Windows 10 from a system that has everything installed on it so it will be available after the upgrade.
