Hi bendjoe, you shouldn't have any problems. Visual Studio provides a development web server (since VS2005) that will allow you to host the service while developing with the WSSF. Since this web server doesn't rely on IIS, it can also work under XP Home Edition as per the following msdn link:

"The ASP.NET Development Server, which is included with Visual Web Developer, is a Web server that runs locally on Windows operating systems, including Windows XP Home Edition."
