You can build C# .NET samples using Microsoft Visual C# 2008 Express or Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.


  1. Open a Visual Studio 2008 command prompt from the Windows Start Menu as follows: Start > Programs > Visual Studio 2008 > Visual Studio Tools > Command Prompt.
  2. Start the Windows command prompt.
    On 64‐bit Windows systems, run C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe so the sample programs execute under Windows 32‐bit on Windows 64‐bit (WOW64).
  3. Navigate to the SDK\samples\DotNet sub‐directory.
  4. At the command prompt, type Build2008.cmd to execute the build commands.
