If you’re thinking about building document workflows on XPS APIs, the first thing to consider is which framework to start with.

.NET Framework

Windows SDK for Windows 7

Platforms:

  • Windows XP
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Server 2003
  • Windows Server 2008

Platform:

  • Windows 7

While the Windows 7 SDK supports new scenarios, it is still pre-release and won’t run on older Windows releases. We recommend starting with the .NET Framework today and moving over to the Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 when it makes sense for you.

.NET Framework

Things you’ll need to get started…

  1. .NET Framework 3.0 or greater
  2. Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2008 Express

Starting points…

Windows 7

Things you’ll need to get started…

  1. Microsoft Windows 7 beta (currently available only to Microsoft Windows 7 registered beta testers)
  2. Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7
  3. Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2008 Express

Starting points…

 

As Windows 7 approaches release we will continue to provide more information on the new APIs and when/how to make the jump to Windows 7 APIs.
