Windows SDK for Windows Server 2008 Release Candidate 0 and .NET Framework 3.5 Beta2

This prerelease of the Windows SDK is for preview purposes only. The APIs, documentation, samples, headers, libraries, and tools are preliminary and subject to change. Please use this prerelease only in a test environment and only on a machine where any earlier pre-release version of the Windows SDK has been uninstalled.


NOTE: A number of known issues exist with this prerelease. Please see the Release Notes with this download for more information, including configuration of the SDK build environment.


The Windows SDK for Windows Server® 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 provides the prerelease documentation, samples, header files, libraries, and tools (including C++ compilers) that you need to develop applications to run on Windows Server 2008 Release Candidate 0 and the .NET Framework 3.5 Beta2. To build and run .NET Framework applications, you must have the corresponding version of the .NET Framework installed. See System Requirements on this page for more details.

This SDK is compatible with the RTM release of Visual Studio® 2005 Service Pack 1, including Visual Studio Express Editions, which are available free of charge. Prerelease editions of the next version of Visual Studio are available from Visual Studio 2008 Beta2 and can also be used with this SDK.

Compilers and Build Environments: In addition to the headers and libraries used to build 32-bit and 64-bit Win32 Windows applications, the Windows SDK includes command line C++ compilers for both 32-bit and 64-bit development that are compatible with Visual Studio 2008 Beta2.

Tools: The Windows SDK includes more than 100 GUI and command-line tools to aid in the development of native (Win32) and managed (.NET Framework) systems for the Windows platform.

Documentation: The Windows SDK documentation contains task-based how-to documentation, API reference topics, and feature overviews to help you develop applications using Win32 and .NET Framework APIs.

Samples: Two sets of samples are included by default: .NET Framework samples and Win32 samples. The .NET Framework samples are available both in the SDK documentation and in the .zip files located in the file system in the Sample install directory. The Win32 samples are available only in the file system in the Sample install directory.
