New Windows SDK Samples

The Windows SDK provides samples for many technology areas. The samples are divided into two groups: .NET Framework samples that use managed code and Win32® samples that primarily use native code.

For late-breaking information about samples, go to Start > All Programs > Microsoft Windows SDK v6.1 > Release Notes.
