I am using visual studio 2012. I have been using the WcfServiceHost to host my wcf services in the past with 2008 and I can do so just fine in VS 2012. But now that I am using VS 2012 I really want to run those same wcf services in IIS Express (for multiple
reasons). My problem is that when I right-click on those projects, there is no "Use IIS Express..." option. There is also no "Web" tab when i right-click on my project and go to "properties". All my websites seem to have a "Use IIS Express..." option, but
these other projects do not. I am actually not 100% sure that these project really are WCF Service projects, although we have been referring to them as such for years. They may just be C# class projects. But when you right-click on the projects and go to
"properties" there is a "WCF Options" tab. And in the past we have always checked the checkbox that says "Start WCF Service Host when debugging another project in the same solution".
Yes, I do have IIS Express installed.
Does this make sense? So my question is how can I run these projects that I have hosted with the WCF Service host in the past, to run using IIS Express? (Atleast without having to manual setup, deploy and configure IIS).

Use <project context menu> -> Use IIS Express -> Yes.
