Publisher's Description of Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4

" Tools, compilers, headers, libraries, code samples, and a new help system for developers to create applications that run on Microsoft Windows. "
- From Microsoft Corporation

The Windows SDK provides tools, compilers, headers, libraries, code samples, and a new help system that developers can use to create applications that run on Microsoft Windows.

You can use the Windows SDK to write applications using the native (Win32/COM) or managed (.NET Framework) programming model.

What's New in the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 Release?
- Smaller/Faster: at less than 600MB, this SDK is one third the size of the Windows 7 RTM SDK; it installs faster and has a smaller footprint.

- Cleaner setup: features on setup screens have been grouped into native, managed, and common buckets to help you choose the components you need faster.

- New Microsoft Help System v1.0: this brand new system was first introduced with Visual Studio 2010. You can import just the content you need from the MSDN cloud, and update it according to your schedule.

- Visual C++ 2010 compilers/CRT with improved compilation performance and speed. These are the same compilers and toolset that ships with Visual Studio 2010.

- New command line build environment that uses MSBuild 4.0, now the common Microsoft build system for all languages, and supporting the new Visual C++ project type .vcxproj.

What Does the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 Support?
- Operating Systems: You can install this SDK on and/or create applications for Windows 7, Server 2008 R2, Server 2008, XPSP3, Vista, and Windows Server 2003 R2.

- Platform architecture: you can install this SDK on and/or create applications for platform chipsets X86, X64, and IA64 (Itanium).

- .NET Framework: you can use the SDK resources to create applications that target .NET Framework versions 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4..

- Visual Studio: you can use the resources in this SDK with Visual Studio versions 2005, 2008, and 2010, including Express editions. (Not all features work with all versions of Visual Studio. For example, you can’t use the .NET 4 tools with Visual Studio 2008.)

- Setup/Install options: Win SDK v7.1 will be available through an ISO or a Web setup download and install experience. Web setup allows you to install selected components of the SDK without having to download the entire SDK. The DVD ISO setup allows you to download the entire SDK to install later, or share among different computers.
