Smart Client Software Factory – May 2007 Release is Live

We are excited that you can now download the SCSF – May 2007 release. The new release provides support for .NET 3.0. The release is propagating to the download servers and should be available when you read this. If not, be patient and try a little later.

The release provides:

  • Windows Presentation Foundation interoperability CAB extensions  and View with presenter recipe
  • Offline application blocks and recipes; the application blocks support asynchronous calls to WCF web services.
  • Richer ClickOnce Deployment capabilities
  • Enhanced guidance packages which includes code generation Visual Basic .NET 2005 
  • Improved installation with a new dependency checker

Here are instructions to install the factory. We created a new Getting Starting topic on Codeplex. This topic includes instructions to create a Hello World Application with the factory.

Check it out and let us know how you like it.

    If you install the Guidance Automation you need VB.NET installed on your machine. If you  install the Documentation and/or Factory source code you should not need VB.NET installed on your machine. Once you have the Factory source code installed, you can build and register the guidance package which provides the same functionality you would get when you install the Guidance Automation.

    We are in the process of adding content to that provides detailed steps of how complete this process. It should be available early next week.
