Now, we'll figure out how to get your content into the

If you go to your SDK installation, in the docs directory you'll find a file named "HealthVault Connection Center Extensibility.xps". That will explain the various graphical elements.

For this example, the XML file looks like this:

<HealthApplication>
 <Name>Widget Tracker</Name>
 <Subtitle>Fabrikam</Subtitle>
 <Manufacturer></Manufacturer>
 <Website>http://www.fabrikam.com</Website>
 <Icon>WidgetTracker.ico</Icon>
 <Logo>WidgetTracker.png</Logo>
 <Watermark></Watermark>
 <Description>
  <Paragraph>Welcome to the Widget Tracker!  Use it to track your Widget measurements.</Paragraph>
 </Description>
 <DefaultTask showInTaskList="true">
  <Description>Open Widget Tracker</Description>
  <Action type="Execute">
   <Command>https://www.fabrikam.com</Command>
  </Action>
 </DefaultTask>
</HealthApplication>

Once we get the icon and logo created, then we can build it and test it. To do that, I use the following little batch files:

build.bat 

set BASENAME=WidgetTracker
candle %BASENAME%.wxs
light %BASENAME%.wixobj

test.bat

msiexec /quiet /x %BASENAME%.msi
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft HealthVault\Connection Center\connectioncenter.exe" /quit
%BASENAME%.msi
start C:\PROGRA~1\MI8542~1\CONNEC~1\CONNEC~1.EXE

The test one is especially useful - it uninstalls the shortcut, tells connection center to exit, installs the shortcut, then starts up connection center.

That's all for now. Next we will talk about signing your add-in
