The Windows SDK team has a new vendor, Paragon Media, who supplies DVDs of previously released Windows SDKs and Platform SDKs. Currently, Paragon is making the Windows SDK for Windows Server and .NET Framework 3.5 and the Windows SDK Update for Windows Vista and .NET Framework 3.0 available at http://mssdk.orderport.net for the cost of a shipping and handling fee. Soon, some additional SDK releases will be available at the same location. Although Windows SDK releases are typically available on the Microsoft Download Center for at least two years, ordering a DVD can be a good option for customers who do not have access to the Internet or customers who have difficulty downloading the SDK due to limited Internet bandwidth.

If you have feedback on the service that Paragon is providing, please let us know and we will pass it on to them.
