Developing Windows Desktop Applications with Power Management pemberitahuan
This forum is for issues associated with developing application that work well with Windows Power Management. Please do not post general Windows development or other non-power management related questions to this forum or they will be moved to the 'off-topic' forum.
Visit http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/ff944599.aspx for up to date information on how to design applications that are energy smart and work well with Windows Power Management. Post feedback on this forum if you can't find the information you are looking for via this link.
As somewhat of a social experiment, I'm inviting those of you who've diagnosed issues with apps not working correctly with Windows power management to post your reports on this forum here. Apps not working right could mean that the PC stays awake unnecessarily, or or could mean that the app is negatively impacted by power management because it doesn't request that the system or display stay on while it is perform critical work.
The goal is to share knowledge of the issues so we aren't all "re-diagnosing the same wheel" and hopefully get the attention of the developers of the apps so they can make their applications a little more energy smart. Here's hoping...

Windows Desktop SDK pemberitahuan
The RTM release of the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 is now available for download in both ISO and Web Setup format. Web setup allows you to install a specific subset of the SDK you select without having to download the entire SDK. The DVD ISO setup allows you to download the entire SDK to install later. This release of the SDK has three ISOs to choose from. You should pick the version that matches the CPU (x86, x64, or Itanium) you are installing on. Each ISO will allow you to build applications that target all the other CPU platforms. If you install the x86 ISO (which only installs on x86 platforms), you will be able to create applications targeting x86, x64, and Itanium.

Windows Desktop Development for Ink, Touch, and Tablet PC pemberitahuan
Hello and welcome to the "Ink, Multi-Touch, and Other Tablet PC Development" forum.
This is the place where you can post questions, tricks, tips, and other observations about creating applications that specifically take advantage of natural input methods of ink and touch. Whether you are setting up a development environment, integrating handwriting into an existing application, or creating a state-of-the-art multi-touch client application from the ground up, we will strive to ensure that both other members of the developer community as well as product team members from Microsoft are pointing you to the correct resources and helping out where applicable.
Some resources that you should know about immediately:
- The Windows Developer Center on MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/windows) contains pages dedicated to Tablet and Touch Technology. From the home page, click Technologies, and then click Mobile PC.
- In addition, the Windows Developer Center contains resources specific to Tablet and Touch Technology in the Learn page, including How-Do-I videos and MS Learning webcasts.
- The developer center contains a number of hands-on labs dedicated to Tablet and Touch Technology. The labs--written in C++, C#, and Visual Basic .NET--range from getting started to advanced pen data manipulation.
You can find the Tablet and Touch SDK documentation in the MSDN Library:
- All conceptual topics are grouped together under the Tablet PC Development Guide. This includes native and managed conceptual information.
- All of the native reference documentation is located under the Tablet PC COM Library Reference node.
- The reference documentation for managed APIs is located in the following .NET Framework namespaces:
- Microsoft.Ink (general ink functionality)
- Microsoft.Ink.TextInput (Tablet PC Input Panel)
