* WCF Tool : WCF IIS Registration Tool (ServiceModelReg.exe)

Previous Post <<- WCF : Overview of Hosting in IIS

This tool is used to manage the registration of ServiceModel with IIS. ServiceModel is required for hosting WCF services in IIS.

Although if IIS is already present machine where .NET 3.0 is installed, the ServiceModel gets registered automatically but it case of issues this tool can be used for following :

  • Registration
  • Re-Registration
  • UnRegister
  • List all the components registered
  • Verification of registered components.

This tool can be found at following location : %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation

If you have installed pre-release versions of WCF, you will have to do some manual changes in  machine.config. Pls chk MSDN for same.
