    Developer Hub: Download Windows Phone Developer tools SDK 7.1 (Mango) beta & 7.0

    • 2 Comments
      Now you can download the new Windows Phone Developer Tools 7.1 (Mango) Beta can be used to develop Applications for both 7.0 and 7.1 version of Windows Phone OS releases.  You can experiment with the latest tools release for Windows Phone. WPDT 7.1 Beta provides the tooling necessary to target the upcoming Windows Phone OS release (codenamed “Mango”) in addition to productivity enhancements such as an app profiler and an improved emulator.
      Although not required, the Windows Phone Developer Team strongly recommends that you install WPDT 7.1 Beta on a separate machine. Apps built for 7.0 by using the 7.1 beta tools should certify and behave similarly to those produced by your current WPDT environment, but these are beta tools and your apps may behave inconsistently. If you encounter an issue between the beta tools/emulator and production phones, please report the issue on the App Hub 'tools for wp7' forum.
      The Windows Phone Developer Tools includes the following,
      • Microsoft Windows Phone Developer Tools 7.1 (Beta)
      • Windows Phone Emulator (Beta)
      • Silverlight 4 SDK and DRT
      • Microsoft XNA Game Studio 4.0 Refresh Windows Phone Extensions
      • Microsoft Expression Blend SDK Preview for Windows Phone 7.1
      • WCF Data Services Client for Window Phone 7.1
          Please note:
          1) Windows Server, Windows XP & Virtual machine platforms are not supported
          2)  If you are installing Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows® Phone 7.1 alone, you can install it on any drive. If Visual Studio 2010 Professional or higher is already installed on your development computer, Windows Phone Developer Tools 7.1 Beta is installed on the same drive as the existing Visual Studio installation.
          3) If you just need WP 7.0 SDK, then you can Download the Windows Phone 7.0 SDK (Windows Phone Developer Tools), then download and install the Windows Phone Developer Tools January 2011 Update and the Windows Phone Developer Tools Fix. The January 2011 Update should only be applied after you've installed the Windows Phone Developer Tools.

          Note:
          French, Italian, German, and Spanish versions of the tools are available at the Microsoft Download Center.

          MIX 11: Hardware-accelerated HTML5, IE9 & Mango

          • 0 Comments

          Last March 2010 @ MIX 10, we (MS) announced Hardware-Accelerated HTML5, Pushes Boundaries on Web and Cloud Development. Also MS released first platform preview for Windows Internet Explorer 9, highlights commitments to jQuery, OData, expanded support for HTML5, hardware-accelerated graphics and text, and a new JavaScript engine. Together these allow developers to use the same markup and deliver graphically and functionally rich Web applications that take advantage of modern PC hardware through a modern operating system. As part of its commitment to interoperability, MS detailed its support for a number of HTML5 specifications, including CSS3, Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), XHTML parsing, and the video and audio tags using industry-standard (H.264/MPEG4 and MP3/AAC) codecs, among others. In addition, MS demonstrated a new JavaScript engine that uses the multiple cores of today’s modern chips to effectively manage computing resources and improve Web performance. By combining increased interoperability with a new JavaScript engine and Direct 2D technology, Internet Explorer 9 enables Web developers to provide users with richer experiences that render more quickly and consistently.

          Now @ MIX 11, MS demonstrated the value of developing for HTML5 and the standards-based Web with Internet Explorer 9 on PCs running Windows and Internet Explorer 9 on Windows Phone. With the forthcoming release of Windows Phone, coming later this year, MS is providing developers with more hardware capabilities, better browsing and improved tooling, as well as expanded opportunities and Windows Phone Marketplace options. Together, these technologies create a richer application environment that expands mobile usage scenarios.

            Qantas for Windows Phone allows users to manage travel plans including checking in and reviewing the status of an upcoming flight. Coming soon to Windows Phone Marketplace.

          The new application platform enables developers to take advantage of the following:

          • Application multitasking for background processing, audio and file transfer, and fast application switching

          • Deeper phone integration so apps can, for example, take better advantage of the versatility of Live Tiles (refer the above pic)

          • Access to the camera and Motion Sensor library so developers can build apps that incorporate device hardware and build augmented reality experiences

          Apart from this, MS provided the first deep look at the development platform for the next version of Windows Phone, arriving on new and existing handsets later this year. Developers will soon have updated Windows Phone Developer Tools. Improved tools include a performance profiler and sensor simulation, enabling developers to build more integrated and high-performing applications. Using this, the developers (we) will be able to take advantage of these new capabilities to create even more creative and engaging Windows Phone apps and games.

          Way to go!!

          What you mean by Recommended vs. Supported vs. Deprecated vs. Deemphasized?

          • 0 Comments

          When we talk to customers they want to know what is the difference between Recommended, Supported, Deprecated and deemphasized means. This is already well explained in Patrick’s what unsupported mean article.

          In simple terms, “Recommended vs. Supported” means,

          • Supported usually means well tested
          • Support statements define strict boundaries
          • Recommendations define the “best case” or the state that we want our customers to achieve
          • Understand risks of going outside of recommendations or support boundaries

          In simple terms, “Deprecated vs. Deemphasized” means,

          • A deprecated feature is one that has been superseded in the protocol by a newer feature.
          • Deemphasized means to decrease the emphasis on/minimize the importance of the specific feature or protocol.
          • May or may not be available in future versions.
          • So usage of deprecated features is discouraged, deemphasized features should be decreased.
          • Use the alternate workaround or superseded feature to move ahead.

          Hope this helps.

          • 0 Comments

          Windows Phone Update…my Windows Phone first update? This first update for Windows Phone is designed to improve the software update process itself.

               

          How to update?

          You’ll need to connect your phone to your computer and update it using either the Zune software for your PC or the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac (depending on which kind of computer you have).

          Windows Phone 7 Update

          So just install one of these programs, connect your phone to your computer via the USB cable, and then follow the on-screen instructions. I also strongly encourage you to check out our step-by-step guide for updating your phone on the Windows Phone website.

          Please note: If you’ve installed the Zune software or the Windows Phone 7 Connector in the past, you might actually need to update that program first and then use it to update your phone.  If that’s the case, you’ll know. Just follow the on-screen instructions, restart the software, and then connect your phone.

          "MAPI_E_FAILONEPROVIDER" when you try to connect to a mailbox on an Exchange 2010 from an Exchange 2003 server

          • 0 Comments

          Recently one of my customer updated that when he tried connecting to a mailbox that is located on a  Exchange Server 2010 from Exchange Server 2003 by using a custom MAPI/C++ application. But it failed and it thrown the following error message: “MAPI_E_FAILONEPROVIDER”.

          As part of troubleshooting the issue, we tried using MFC MAPI utility and can reproduce the issue. During troubleshooting, we found that this issue occurs because the MAPI subsystem on an Exchange Server 2003 server is not designed to be used on an Exchange Server 2010 server.

          To resolve this issue, we recommended to use the following Exchange MAPI subsystem on an Exchange Server 2010 server/on a Exchange Server 2007 server.

          Please note that the Exchange MAPI client and Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) 1.2.1 can be installed only on Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 servers. Additionally, it includes the MAPI client libraries and supports CDO 1.2.1. However, you cannot install this download on an Exchange 2003 server.

          Download:

          1) You can download the MAPI Sub system @ Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1

          2) You can download the MFC MAPI Utility @ http://mfcmapi.codeplex.com/

          Installing Ubuntu 10.10 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V

          • 0 Comments

          I used the following steps to install Ubuntu (10.10) version in the my Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V machine.

          1) Created a new Hyper-V machine

          2) Downloaded the latest Ubuntu ISO. You can notice few options on this page:

          (a) Download Desktop Edition – I used this.
          (b) Burn your CD or create a USB drive
          (c) You can try it before you install it

          3) Create a legacy Network driver and associate it with the above Hyper-V machine

          4) Select the Ubuntu ISO by the following option: Hyper-V –> Media –> DVD Drive –> Insert Disk

          5) Started the Ubuntu Hyper-V and mount with above ISO

          image

          6) Select the options to Install Ubuntu and its configuration. For the disk management, you can use the entire drive or customize the drive partition as per your requirement.

          image

          image

          One it’s installed, it will request you to restart. During the time, make sure to remove the above mounted ISO drive.

          image

          I would rate the installation is pretty straight, works fine with all the drivers. I haven’t faced any glitches during the above work and loads with 640 * 480 display configuration.

          Bingo. Enjoy!!

          Book review: Programming Windows Phone 7

          • 2 Comments

          Are you the Windows Phone 7 developer or want to know how to create WP7 apps? Then this book is meant for you. To give you a sense of this offering, here is Charles’s Introduction—beneath that you’ll find the ebook’s full Table of Contents:

          Introduction

          This book is a gift from the Windows Phone 7 team at Microsoft to the programming community, and I am proud to have been a part of it. Within the pages that follow, I show you the basics of writing applications for Windows Phone 7 using the C# programming language with the Silverlight and XNA 2D frameworks.

          Yes, Programming Windows Phone 7 is truly a free download, but for those readers who still love paper—as I certainly do—this book will also be available (for sale) divided into two fully-indexed print editions: Microsoft Silverlight Programming for Windows Phone 7 and Microsoft XNA Framework Programming for Windows Phone 7. ]

          The best thing would be, with the money you’ve saved downloading this book, please buy other books. Despite the plethora of information available online, books are still the best way to learn about programming within a coherent and cohesive tutorial narrative. Every book sale brings a tear of joy to an author’s eye, so please help make them weep overflowing rivers.

          In particular, you might want to buy other books to supplement the material in this book. For example, I barely mention Web services in this book, and that’s a serious deficiency because Web services are likely to become increasingly important in Windows Phone 7 applications. My coverage of XNA is limited to 2D graphics and while I hope to add several 3D chapters in the next edition of this book, I don’t really get into the whole Xbox LIVE community aspect of game development. Nor do I discuss any programming tools beyond Visual Studio—not even Expression Blend.

          Sections:

          This book is divided into three parts. The first part discusses basic concepts of Windows Phone 7 programming using example programs that target both Silverlight and the XNA framework. It is likely that many Windows Phone 7 developers will choose either one platform or the other, but I think it’s important for all developers who have at least a little knowledge of the alternative to their chosen path.

          The second part of this book focuses entirely on Silverlight, and the third part on XNA 2D. For your convenience, the chapters in each part build upon previous knowledge in a progressive tutorial narrative, and hence are intended to be read sequentially.

          To use this book properly you’ll need to download and install the Windows Phone Developer Tools, which includes Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone, XNA Game Studio 4.0, and an on-screen Windows Phone Emulator to test your programs in the absence of an actual device. Get the latest information and downloads at http://developer.windowsphone.com.

          PDF Download:BTW, you can download a PDF here (38.6 MB).

          Code samples (C#): You can download the ebook’s C# sample code here (5.03 MB).

          Code samples (VB.Net): And you can download the sample code in Visual Basic for Chapters 1-18 here (5.21 MB).

          Nice way to start with! Wonderful book for the Windows Phone 7 programming!

With Tracking Protection, consumers can filter content in a page that may have an impact on privacy. Here you see a stock ticker, links for social sharing, videos, advertisements and single pixel images used for tracking page usage by third parties.

          Why you need Tracking Protection in IE9? It puts people in control of what data is being shared as they move around the Web. It does this by enabling consumers to indicate what websites they’d prefer to not exchange information with. Consumers do this by adding Tracking Protection Lists to Internet Explorer. Anyone, and any organization, on the Web can author and publish Tracking Protection Lists. Consumers can install more than one. By default, there are no lists included in IE9, which is consistent with our previous IE releases with respect to privacy.

          These lists include Web addresses for IE to treat as “Do Not Call” unless the consumer visits the address directly. The lists also include “OK to Call” addresses to make sure that the user can get to these addresses even if one of their lists has it as “Do Not Call.” Once the consumer has turned on Tracking Protection, it remains on until the person turns it off.

          Again, it’s worth noting that consumers have to turn on Tracking Protection and that by default IE9’s privacy protections are similar to IE8’s.

          Why using Custom Outlook forms and HTTP scenarios not recommended?

          • 0 Comments

          In Outlook, custom Outlook forms are not supported for use with HTTP-based mail services (such as Microsoft Hotmail). Outlook does not prevent you from using custom form features if you are using an HTTP-based mail service. However, some features do not work correctly. The features do not work correctly because HTTP-based mail messages are stored in a read-only state on the server. Therefore, we recommend that you do not use custom Outlook forms if you are using an HTTP-based mail service.
