Manually configure WCF to use HTTP on Vista home premium

I'm trying to develop and deploy a WCF service using VS2008 and Vista home premium. I don't have IIS running and understand I don't need to if I manually configure the WCF app ... using netsh.exe I believe.

Can anyone give me clear guidance on how to go from the development project in VS2008 to a useable service?

Many thanks.


A WCF service needs a host to run. As IIS is out of the question you have a couple of possibilities left:

  1. Write a Windows NT service and host it there
  2. Write a managed application which will host your service (less robust)

As far as netsh.exe is concerned I don't see much relevance with WCF.
