Windows Workflow Foundation helps you design both sequential and state-driven workflows, simplifying the process of building applications to handle complex human-centric processes.
Walk through a step-by-step Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 installation of SuSE Linux 9.1 Professional. Once it's built, you can clone your Virtual PC, back it up, perform experiments on it, restore it, and even distribute it to others.
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 lets you expose specific stored procedures, user-defined functions, and SQL queries for use via HTTP or secure HTTP, making SQL Server databases more accessible to non-Windows clients, and improving security by eliminating the need to open TCP ports for SQL Server.
Learning to program in .NET offers developers new opportunities for frustration. For example, calling specific Win32 APIs in .NET using the DllImport is not as straightforward as it initially seems. Protect yourself against future setbacks when using the DllImport by learning these simple principles now.
Although the .NET framework encapsulates a large portion of the Win32 API, it's sometimes still necessary to call the API from your managed code using the DllImport attributeand that can get complicated.
Learn how to use the DllAttribute's MarshalAs and StructLayout options to interoperate with unmanaged code that uses structures, and to control data layouts and marshalling precisely.
