Issue with WCF Service

Hi
I am running through the following walkthrough
http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/97204/Implementing-a-Basic-Hello-World-WCF-Service

But don't quite understand what to do at the following instruction:
2.After the service has been started, run the command line svcutil.exe tool with the following syntax (SvcUtil.exe may be in a different directory in your machine; for example in Windows 7, it is under the v7.0A directory):

What do I run this in? Do I just double click it in Windows Explorer?

change the cmd prompt to the folder that the executable is in and then run the commannd
unless the path is already a part of the environment path in computer properties.

Hi. I already tried the command prompt I think. You open it by typing "cmd" in the start menu right? What do I do then?
p_davisCommented:
do a search on your drive to see where the SvcUtil.exe  is.... then do a cd  "path to executable" before you run the command that you were given..

if you do it and the computer environment doesn't know where to look you have to implicitly give it the path with the cd command

Thanks very much

You do not have to search your hard disk when you want to use one of the tools that come with the framework or Visual Sutdio.

Simply start the Command Prompt that is available under the Visual Studio group in the Programs menu. This one sets the PATH environment variable to all the directories that contains tools, so you simply need to launch the tool without having to know where it is and cd to it.

@James.... I did say  if it wasn't a part of the environment path
Jacques Bourgeois (James Burger)PresidentCommented:
@p_davis

I know that you did. But I also know that many programmers do not know about the Visual Studio Command Prompt, or they see it wondering what it is used for.

After running the service I opened the Visual Studio 2010 cpmmand prompt and copied in the following C:\SOAWithWCFandLINQ\Projects\HelloWorld\HelloWorldClient>"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v10.0A\bin\NETFX 4.6 Tools\SvcUtil.exe"
  http://localhost:8080/HostDevServer/HelloWorldService.svc?wsdl
  /out:HelloWorldServiceRef.cs /config:app.config

but I got the errors shown in the image
