A refreshed version of the Windows Vista Media Center SDK has been released for download on the Microsoft Download Center today. You can download it at the same location as the original release of the SDK - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=A43EA0B7-B85F-4612-AA08-3BF128C5873E&displaylang=en.
This refresh will automatically upgrade any previous version of the Windows Vista Media Center SDK that you have on your system. This refresh is mostly aimed at enhancing some of the documentation and sample code. It does not include new versions of the tools like the MCML Preview Tool (McmlPad), but it does now include the MCML Preview Tool Launcher power toy that was previously only available as a separate download.
The SDK refresh installs to the same c:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Media Center\v5.0 folder by default, but the setup UI and the entry in Add/Remove Programs both specify that the product is named Microsoft Windows Media Center SDK 5.1 (instead of v5.0). We decided to not change the folder path because a lot of the documentation refers to the v5.0 folder name.
The following is a summary of the key changes in the Windows Vista Media Center SDK refresh (this list is also available in the Getting Started document that launches at the end of installation):
