I am wrapping up studying for my WCF Upgrade exam – I completed all of the labs in Microsoft learning and I am now building some Hello World projects to focus on specific areas for the exam. I ran into an interesting problem. I created a new solution with some class libaries in it and 1 console project to be my hosting application. I did not used the WCF templates. When I added an App.config to the Console applciation and right clicked on it, the WCF editor did not show up. The project already had a System.ServiceModel reference. I wonder what you need to do to have this editor show up in a project? A quick glance through my solution and a parallel WCF-template generated solution did not reveal anything.
In related news to the labs – lab 6654 does not work because of SQL Server security permissions, 6659 does not work because of SQL Server security permissions (which is ok because that is the exception you are supposed to raise anyway), and 6658 does not work out of the box because they did not define the binding as duplex. This can be fixed by changing the binding.
