What does "open exe" mean? Running it? If so, where is it supposed to run? On the same computer? If so, look into the Process class - that can be used to run an exe file. If this is not the solution you are looking for, you need to provide WAY more details.

Your question makes no sense. You said you've written a WPF app and you''re trying to launch and .EXE. OK, you can do that with the Process class[^].

Then you mention a WCF service and you're trying to launch "that .EXE" from that? What .EXE are you talking about? Where is the WCF service hosted? What .EXE are you trying to launch? Are you trying to launch "that .EXE" on the same machine as the WCF service?

If you're trying to run a WCF service, it MUST be hosted, either by IIS or by self-hosting. You have no other options.
