“Edit WCF Configuration” is missing from Visual Studio 2008 context menu

So this morning I format a laptop and install a fresh copy of Visual Studio 2008. I then try to edit the Web.Config using Edit WCF Configuration, but wait it’s missing! What the hell?

So I look around in VS menus and find Tools -> WCF Service Configurator Editor. I clicked it and modified my Web.Config…But I really liked to have the option to just open this in the Context Menu! I clicked again just to humor myself and it was back!

I don’t know what happened there, it’s actually the first time I see this, but I don’t play much with WCF! I was actually able to reproduce this first hand on a virtual machine….

Thank you very much! This is the kind of fix I love: get a problem, search for it, see a very fast fix with screenshots and the correct keywords.

There should be awards for pages like this one.

Same issue in Visual Studio 2010, clicked it in the tools menu and it appeared. Thanks.
