ÃÂ I've got a WCF service that makes use of SQL compact edition -- which is only availible in 32 bit. The result is when I'm building and running on my x64 bit machine I have to tell the build system to build as x86 rather than "Any CPU". In the IDE, however, it seems like I loose a lot of functionality when I do this.
ÃÂ For example, I have tests for all my WCF services using the IDE's built in testing framework. On my x86 machine it was great - I'd hit debug, the IDE would automatically start the WCF service inÃÂ a local service host, and then if I'd set a breakpoint it would automatically stop. How sweet is that?
ÃÂ But because of this x86 requirement, the IDE starts the WCF host process that is 64 bit, and that fails to load the x86 project... so it would seem that I've lost the ability to debug and step into my service automatically. This is too bad - this is a real productivity loss.
ÃÂ Have others figure out a way around this? Thanks in advance for any advice!
ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ Cheers,
