Where can I find the WCF Tools such as WCFTestClient.exe?

If you are looking for WCF Tools to test out your WCF Service, locating all of the various tools can be a little bit confusing since they are found in different locations.

For example, if you are looking for WcfTestClient.exe, this can be found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE (for Visual Studio 2012).

However, if you are looking for some other debugging tools for WCF Services, they can instead be found in the Windows SDK directory here:  C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v.8.0A\bin\NETFX 4.0 Tools (for Visual Studio 2012).

Some of the tools that can be found in the Windows SDK directory include the following:

  1. SvcConfigEditor.exe
  2. SvcTraceViewer.exe
  3. SvcUtil.exe
