Developing applications and scripts for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 can be done using a number of development languages and tools. Which one you use depends on the type of application you are writing. Large applications will likely be written in C# using the managed Configuration Manager 2007 libraries. VBScript is a good choice for scripting Configuration Manager.
This documentation provides examples in C#, VBScript and, where appropriate, C++.
|If you are programming with another .NET Framework language, use the C# examples for reference.|
The Configuration Manager SDK can be installed on Microsoft Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with at least service pack one.
Visual Studio 2005 provides a suitable environment for developing Configuration Manager applications and scripts. For more information about Visual Studio hardware requirements, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=110322.
