WSD Device Development

Device manufacturers and other device implementers can create devices that interoperate with Windows-based WSDAPI clients and hosts without using WSDAPI.

In addition to developing the device functionality, device implementers must implement the Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS). Devices that use the secure channel for communication must also implement a number of security-related requirements. These requirements are described in the topics Secure WSD Client Development and Secure WSD Device Development.

Whenever possible, use WSDAPI to create a Windows-based WSD client or device host application. Using WSDAPI reduces the complexity of development and saves time. For more information, see WSD Application Development on Windows.
