I am new to the service factory conepts and currently trying to understand these concepts. I have installed Modelling edition (Binary installer) for VS 2005.

I would like to add new data contract file under Datacontract project. But am not getting any option to add new data contract at all. I can see Data Contract tools item in Toolbox, but it is disabled. Similarly i can see Service Contracts Tools in Toolbox, but that is also disabled.

Can anybody help me in this? I think i am missing something.  Please help me in creating new service contract and new data contract for WCF implementation projects in VS 2005.

Try cross checking the installation requirements like having the VS2005 SDK or any other prerequisite.
You can also try running under an admin console "devenv /setup".
