WCF service on IIS won't compile new version
I have a WCF Service that IIS is hosting.
I want to make a few small tweaks to it away from the office
So I have remote desktop in and made the changes to the interface and the cs file.. however IIS does not recompile a new version? I tried editing the web.config file as well (just adding some line spaces in)
I ran into this problem at the office so I have just been compiling it in VS and copying the whole directory across..
But shouldn't IIS compile it when changes are made, the same way it does for webpages?

This will depend on which mode you decided to use:
- ASP.NET Web Site
- ASP.NET Web Application (precompiled)
If you choose the precompiled ASP.NET Web Application mode when creating the web service it is pretty useless to deploy any .cs files to your server. They will never be used, only the compiled assemblies in the bin folder.
As far as the Web Site mode is concerned, all .cs files go into the special ~/App_Code folder.
