unmanaged client for WCF Service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,


    I know this question has been asked numerous times, however, I think my situation is slightly different.


    We have a WCF service host EXE that exposes a simple interface consisting at this point of a single method. We have an unmanaged C++ shell extension that needs to invoke this method. Our transport of choice would be TCP or Named Pipes. It should be noted that the WCF service host EXE only needs to accept calls from clients on the same machine.


    How would one go about invoking the WCF service from unmanaged C++?


    Can anyone point to some good information on how to achieve this. We are currently experimenting with just raw named pipes, without using WCF, but would prefer WCF since we will introduce other clients written in managed code in the future (still on the same physical machine).
