Is Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) used specially for Web Services? Does its use require additional installs on .NET 2.0 framework? Thanks.

    Accepted Solution

    You need .NET 3.0 to get the WCF.  It is not only for web services, but anything that needs some communication functionality.
