  • Hi,

    Using the Live Connect APIs as a plain REST service is absolutely a supported scenario. Please check out the "Rest API" section of the documentation reference.

    Let me know if this could use some more clarification. And sorry for the late response.

    Thanks,

    Working with Live Connect requires that you are able to login the user via a web browser. I'm not sure there is a web browser control in .NET CF. If there isn't then you will not be able to use Live Connect from .NET CF.

  • I can see that, Windows.Live namespace is unavailable in .Net CF.

    But is there no way to access calendar events programmetically via C# and .Net, I mean by using 'Socket' or 'HttpWebRequest' object and then sending raw json to hotmail server?

    As I mentioned above, you will need to log the user in, get consent and then acquire an access token. When you have the access token you can make HTTP calls to retrieve JSON content from our servers.
