How to Install WCF .NET

Windows Communication Foundation forms part of the .net Framework 3.0 runtime. This runtime is completely backwards compatible to Windows XP (SP2) and Windows 2003, and it allows you to support hosting and calling WCF services. In order to produce services, it is worthwhile installing both the Windows Vista SDK (of which the .net 3.0 SDK forms a part) and the Visual Studio integration add-on as well. Be aware, the latter Visual Studio installation is still officially in beta, but it works fine with 2003, despite being a bit feature-sparse, as we shall see.
