To get the most out of this book, you will need the following:
Microsoft Windows (Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Server 2003)
Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2002 or Visual Studio .NET 2003
Many of the code samples in the book can also be used with Microsoft Visual C# .NET or with the command-line tools in the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 (or 1.1) Software Development Kit (SDK). However, because these tools don't have the same capabilities as Visual Studio .NET, the tasks described in the book will be different from your experience.
