The .NET Framework Software Development Kit (SDK) contains samples, compilers, and command-line tools designed to help you build applications and services based on .NET Framework technology. The SDK also provides documentation that includes an extensive class library reference, conceptual overviews, step-by-step procedures, tools information, and tutorials that demonstrate how to create specific types of applications. If you want to distribute the .NET Framework with your application, you also need to download the .NET Framework Redistributable version 1.0. Note: Version 1.0a of the .NET Framework SDK removes a security vulnerability found in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine. If you have previously installed the .NET Framework SDK v1.0, you do not need to install the .NET Framework SDK v1.0a, instead you should install the latest service packs. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
