Discuss and ask questions about Live Connect and the Live SDK. Live Connect enables developers to connect their websites, applications and devices to Windows Live ID, SkyDrive, Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger. The Live SDK is the associated set of downloads for targeting development on Windows Phone and Windows Developer Preview.
Application provisioning API will be deprecated in March 2013.Shelly GuoMicrosoft Employeemartes, 11 de diciembre de 2012 5:40
When we shipped the Live Connect API service 5.0 April last year, we included the functionality to allow an app to provision applications on behaves of other developers. This functionality is enabled if the app has permission to use the wl.application and the wl.application_create scope. Application information can be access through the https://apis.live.net/v5.0/me/applications path. After observing the usage pattern of this API for more than a year, we have concluded that this API does not fit into the user model and the design goals of the Live Connect API, whose primary objective is to provide developer access to user’s data stored in Windows services, not a platform to auto provision applications. With that, we’re now announcing the plan to decommission any APIs that are related to application provisioning through the Live Connect API service, which include all calls to the https://apis.live.net/v5.0/me/applications path and its sub-paths. These APIs will stop working in March 2013.
Messenger Connect v4.1 is now deprecated
With the release of v5.0 of the Messenger Connect API, the previous version is now deprecated. As mentioned in the v5.0 announcement blog post, the latest version of the Messenger Connect API is the result of taking into account a lot of the input from developers about how to simplify the API and address key limitations we had in the previous version.
The v4.1 API will continue to function and will be supported for one year after the release of the v5.0 API. New applications are strongly encouraged to use the v5.0 Messenger Connect instead of the deprecated v4.1 API. It is also recommended that when you upgrade or modify existing applications avoid using and remove usage of the v4.1 APIs.
Below is a list of v4.1 features that will no longer be supported in new applications with the release of v5.0 of the Messenger Connect API
- The v4.1 API provides the ability to publish activities using activity streams to a user’s Messenger Social feed. We received significant feedback from developers and end users that this functionality is not complete because it doesn’t set the Messenger status field and is thus not visible in the user contact list nor in mobile or previous versions of the Messenger client. In addition, we’ve gotten complaints about the complexity of the data formats required to publish status updates. For this reason, we have updated the activity object available in v5.0 to address these shortcomings. For this reason we are not supporting any new applications using the v4.1 activity publishing APIs although this will continue to function in existing applications. Any new applications that try to use this functionality from the v4.1 APIs will receive a 1073 error.
In summary, the v4.1 Messenger Connect APIs are deprecated and ceased working on August 14, 2012.
Support for XMPP ends in October 2013
Last year, we announced that support for Messenger will end in 2013. Apps that already use Extensible Messages and Presence Protocol (XMPP) will continue to be supported until October 2013. We strongly discourage any new implementations relying on XMPP. Instead, we encourage you to learn more about our APIs for SkyDrive, Hotmail and Skype at http://dev.live.com.
The documentation for XMPP and messaging has been removed from the Windows Dev Center and archived. This info will not be updated and might contain links to content that no longer exists. But you can still find the XMPP topics here if you need them:
Live Connect v5.2 released
The final version of the Live SDK v5.2 for Windows 8 and Windows Phone is now available for download here. There are several versions of the Live SDK, depending on your target development platform:
- Live SDK for Windows and Windows Phone: use this edition if you're developing apps for Windows 8 or apps for Windows Phone 7.0 or 7.5. .
- Live SDK for Android: use this edition if you're developing apps for Google Android mobile technology platform devices, like those running Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and Ice Cream Sandwich. .
- Live SDK for iOS: use this edition if you're developing apps for the iOS operating system for Apple devices, like iPad, iTouch, and iPod. .
We’ve also added the following new features in the REST API as highlighted in this SkyDrive blog post.
If you're developing apps for other platforms, you don't need to download the Live SDK; you can reference our updated Representational State Transfer (REST) API directly, as follows:
- For Windows desktop apps, and for mobile apps for other than Windows Phone, Android, and iOS, .
If you have any questions about these downloads or about the Live SDKs in general, post them in this forum. We have team members here that are ready to help you.

Changes in OAuth Endpoints
We would like to inform you of about the changes to the OAuth 2.0 SDK. We have transitioned the OAuth endpoints to https://login.live.com. This change is to move our OAuth 2.0 authentication service to be on the same backend as our primary login infrastructure. It will give increased scalability and reliability to our OAuth interface and also add some security features like invalidating refresh tokens if the users are detected as compromised or has changed their password.
The https://oauth.live.com endpoints will continue to function but with slightly increased latency so we recommend you begin using the new URL’s.
The new endpoints are:
- authorization: https://login.live.com/oauth20_authorize.srf
- token: https://login.live.com/oauth20_token.srf
- desktop: https://login.live.com/oauth20_desktop.srf
The old end points are:
Live SDK v5.3 releasedShelly GuoMicrosoft Employeejueves, 20 de diciembre de 2012 6:03
Live SDK v5.3 is now available for download here. New additions to this version of the SDK include:
- New .NET SDKs for client and server. Since we first introduced the Live SDK, we have seen a lot of developers ask for a .NET library that would work for classic desktop apps and ASP.NET applications. With this release you can now create applications that target traditional desktop scenarios and as well as server side scenarios. With the client .NET SDK, you can create WPF, Windows Form or console applications that let your users use their SkyDrive data. With the ASP.NET SDK, you can create websites and web server components that talk to the Live Connect API service. Using the SDK also makes it easy for you to incorporate Microsoft account into your identity system or even just use Microsoft account as your primary identity system. Be sure to check out our Build talk “Powering your apps with Microsoft accounts” below to learn more about it.
- Windows Phone 8 SDK. The WP 8 SDK takes advantage of some of the new features that Windows Phone 8 has to offer and provided you with an easy to use programming model by supporting the new Task<T> async pattern and dynamic keyword. With this you can easily move your code between your Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 application.
- Open source projects for Windows and Windows Phone SDKs. Starting from v5.3, all Live SDK client components written in C#, Objective C and Java are released as open source projects. This makes it much easier for developers to resolve problems quickly and build solutions that are tailored to their scenarios. Be sure to check out our gibhub depot for new additions of the Windows and Windows Phone SDK source code.
- New samples and starter guides. New samples for Windows and Windows Phone are added as part of the open source Windows SDK projects. We also have an updated starter guide for Windows Phone 8 and a new one for Windows 8 and Asp.Net.
SkyDrive REST API enhancements - we have added the ability to search for files in a user’s SkyDrive by using a partial file name. You can do this by simply making an HTTP GET call with the search parameter 'q'. Here is an example:
The response contains the list of files that have “expenses” in the file name.
