When developing windows 8 apps, I can not debug my wcf service it connects to (project is part of the solution). I've never had this issue before. Anytime I debug a project I can debug any project I have in the solution when I call a function. What changed with the windows 8 apps and wcf debugging? Is there an option I have to enable? Sorry it is probably something dumb I'm missing but my current research is not turning up anything. I keep finding remote debugging issues and I'm debugging everything locally.

And to be clear, I mean the breakpoints do not load on the wcf project.

The only work around I've found (aside from using the crappy attach to process method which I'd never want to use) is to use the multiple start up feature in visual studio. In case anyone runs into this since no one here seems to know the answer I thought I'd just write this in in case someone is bashing their head on the wall asking why did microsoft change something that should've stayed simple.
