Current information about Live Connect is now available in the Windows Live Developer Center. The information in the following sections is provided for legacy purposes only.

This walkthrough guides you through the process of creating a simple PHP website that uses PHP to implement OAuth WRAP sign-in and uses the JavaScript Library to access user data. In creating this website, you will do the following:

  • Integrate OAuth WRAP in PHP. By using the OAuth WRAP protocol, Messenger Connect enables users to sign in with their Windows Live credentials and then authorize an application to access Windows Live data and functionality on their behalf.
  • Create a PHP page and add Messenger Connect user interface controls. Such controls include Application Control, which provides application configuration information; and Sign In Control, which adds sign-in functionality.
  • Explore the Messenger Connect JavaScript Library by adding code to enumerate user contacts.
