How to: Set Sample Settings

Some .NET Framework Samples require environment variable values to be specified on your computer. The variables are initialized when you start the SDK Command Prompt.

Subsequent releases of the .NET Framework are built incrementally on the .NET Framework version 2.0. Consequently, the SDK Command Prompt from the .NET Framework 2.0 SDK is the latest stand-alone SDK Command Prompt available. Alternatively, you may use the Visual Studio command prompts that are provided with Visual Studio 2005 and later versions.

To start the SDK Command Prompt in the .NET Framework version 2.0

  • Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft .NET Framework SDK v2.0, and then click SDK Command Prompt.
