hopefully, since this is windows 7 series, you'll have a "pro" version.
Despite the badge on my hip, I have no inside information to confirm this... however I suspect that 'series' has less to do with multiple skus as had been rumored prior to today... but more to do with the series of physical phones than the
Only time will tell though as there is still a lot we don’t know.
And here I only thought I was funny looking in the mirror... though I must remember next time to use both arms a little more... it just took me a little while to warm up with the camera there.
Engage me in the right kind of discussion/debate in person or on video and you'll see a bit of a different side... still very friendly and what not... but also quite serious and able to tear down the other side.
In order to use the template, simply copy it to one of the following directories to make it work in Visual Studio 2005 (or Express):
%UserProfile%\Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual Basic\
%UserProfile%\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual Basic\
Once there, simply launch Visual Studio and bring up the New Project dialog, select Visual Basic and you should see the Home Server Add-In template listed under My Templates (with my wonderful icon), type in a name you want and hit OK and you are on your way.
Two words of warning though:
First up, due to a Visual Studio bug (which they claim is fixed in a post beta 2 version of 2008), you will need to change the assembly name of your project before you can deploy it (to C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server\ on your WHS).
By default Visual Studio gives your assembly the same name as the project... instead you'll need to change it's name to:
HomeServerConsoleTab.<Safe Add-in Name>
Where <Safe Add-in Name> is the same name as the last namespace listed in your root namespace.
The other warning is that you will need to copy HomeServerExt.dll from your Home Server to your development machine and reference it in order to make the add-in you create with this template build.
I'll be writing more up on this on Monday along with some pictures.
Excellent video, although I'm a bit confused (and excited)...
You said that there was going to be a client side SDK... only in your example you were using WHSInfoClass from Microsoft.HomeServer.SDK.Interop.v1.dll to add and remove notifications while completely on the server... to confirm... before to long you'll be shipping
a similar ability that will work on the client side?
