What is svc file? How to open svc files?

The svc file extension is associated with WCF Web Service.

The svc files are text files that contain information about a Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service that can be run using Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS).

The svc files include a WCF-specific processing directive that activates hosted services in response to incoming messages.

Web services are components on a Web server that a client application can call by making HTTP requests across the Web. ASP.NET enables you to create custom Web services or to use built-in application services, and to call these services from any client application.

The syntax of an svc file can be something like this:
<% @ServiceHost Service="Namespace.ServiceTypeName" %>

The address of the svc file is usually something like this:
http://localhost/Application/MyService.svc
