Welcome to the tutorial. In this tutorial, we will develop a HealthVault application from scratch.

My intention is to add new tutorial chapters on a roughly weekly basis, though I have a few ones queued up and already to go.

If you haven’t located the HealthVault Developer Center on MSDN, start by spending some time there. You can find a link to the SDK on the left side of the page. Download the SDK and install it.

You will also need to have Microsoft Visual Studio installed on your machine (either 2005 or 2008). IIS is optional for development but may be useful for testing.
