Over 1,200 samples were changed since the release of the Windows SDK for Windows 7 RC release. Many “new to Win 7” samples were added, simplified, or extended, and many older samples were updated to support Windows 7 as well as older operating systems.


 


For build instructions and additional information about the samples, see the Readme.txt files and other documents in the SDK sample folders. For general sample building instructions, refer to the Samples Reference page that installs with the Windows SDK, and the SDK Release Notes (under the Start menu, in All Programs > Microsoft Windows SDK v7.0). By default, Win32 samples are installed under the following path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Samples.
