With a Web Service (asmx) project I can set the start page to be an asmx page and then manually test the service by entering parameters with Internet Explorer.... is there a similar way of debugging WCF services?

no its bit different

The only way we have been able to debug WCF services hosted in IIS, is by attaching the debugger to the aspnet_wp.exe process manually and then setting breakpoints or stepping into service methods.


Other options are to create an ordinary ASP.NET project and implementing the WCF service there, to create a console application that will host the WCF services, or inserting a call to Debugger.Lauch() into the service method to launch the debugger window.
