how to make service reference for webservice that requires client cert

Oct 18 2020 3:59 AM
im trying to call a webservice that requires a client certificate
so i open VS2015 and try to add service reference
i came up with the following error
 
There was an error downloading 'HTTPS URL/$metadata'.
The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.
Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'HTTPS URL/'.
Could not establish secure channel for SSL/TLS with authority 'HTTPS URL'.
The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.
If the service is defined in the current solution, try building the solution and adding the service reference again.
 
so i have google it ,and i came up with alot of things to do 
the first thing i have done is add the pfx file to mmc at personal part
also add the cert to the Trusted Root certificate authorities
 
also tried the following command
CertUtil -p PASSWORD -ImportPFX d:\pi-client.pfx

Certificate "WesternUnionPartnerIntegration" already in store.

CertUtil: -importPFX command completed successfully.
 
then i tried to add the service reference again but still the same error !
 
i dont know where is the issue , i have worked with alot of webservice with https but with no client certificate 
i need help !!
Thanks
