How to start csharp development

P: n/a
Hi,

I am new to csharp programming. I would like to know how to set up my
environment for csharp learning processs.

Dot net installation has 8 cds. How many cds I really need to setup
environment. or just .Net frame work is enough for starting.
TIA.

A completely free solution would involve:

1. .NET Framework
2. .NET Framework SDK and Docs
3. SharpDevelop or other IDE to work with csc.exe supplied by SDK.

Slight point of pedantry: the compiler (csc.exe) is actually supplied
by the framework, not the SDK. You *can* develop in C# with just the
framework installed and a simple text editor. Using an IDE is generally
preferable though - at least for significant amounts of code. (I use a
text editor for simple throwaway stuff like newsgroup tests.)

You only need the .net SDK, the .net runtime is obviously included in that.

Borland have a product called C#Builder. There is a personal version which
is completely free, the benefit of this version is that it has integrated
debugging which I have heard other free IDEs do not have. You can't release
anything you write with Personal.

I don't remember the facts but which version of the OS is also
a consideration as well as the lesson learned by some that requires
IIS to be installed before the framework lest configuration issues
will occur.

Am I wrong in thinking that you *can* release programs made with it, but
not _commercially_?

Hi,
Thanks for your information.
I want to learn c sharp .

I am new to .net Development.I download the following 2 Installations from
the Microsoft site.

1.DownLoad
A. Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable (23MB)
B.Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Software Development Kit (106).
2.Installation

Then I installed .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable in my windows 2000
professional sp3.

3.After Installation

Above installation create the directory structure

E:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705
E:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322

I notice that csc.exe (Compiler) is there in above directories.

4. Write A Sample Program

using System;
class HelloWorld
{
public static void Main()
{
Console.WriteLine("Hello World !");
}
}

Now I can compile and run the program/

My Questions:

1. Why I have to install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Software Development
Kit (106 MB)?
[Without sdk I can write and run the program with Microsoft .NET Framework
1.1 Redistributable (23MB)]

TIA

It sounds like you want a manifest or table of contents that describes
and compares the contents of the SDK with the redistributable.
Briefly, the redistributable includes the bare minimum to compile and
run a program developed using the DNF. The functionality provided
by the redistributeable must be present on the client or the server.

There is a lot to learn. I think the best thing to do is start spending
a lot
of time reading documentation at msdn.microsoft.com.

you only need the sdk for more advanced tools and some excellent training
QuickStarts. Chances are in the begining you will be using mainly csc.
