WHS Source

So, eventually there will be something here. I haven't quite decided what, yet. If you have any thoughts, contact me on the WHS forums. I hang out there way too much.

For the moment, though, this page and what little it links to is all there is.

Visual Studio templates

In the mean time, if you're interested, you can download a Visual C# Express template for creating a custom Windows Home Server Console add-in. It's built almost entirely from the sample code in the beta WHS SDK on MSDN. To use it, download it to:

%userprofile%\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual C#

without unzipping it. You will have to change the reference to HomeServerExt.dll from the location I used to wherever you have placed your development copy of that DLL (unless you think exactly like I do, a scary thought...). Everything else should work, I think.

You can also download a VB Express template that's otherwise basically identical to the above VC# template. Change the Visual C# in the path above to Visual Basic.

For both templates, I'm interested in learning what you do with them, and I really expect you to tell me if there's a major problem with the template.
