About Configuration Manager SDK Requirements

Developing applications and scripts for Microsoft Configuration Manager can be done using a number of development languages and tools. Which one you use depends on the type of application you are writing. Large applications will likely be written in C# using the managed Configuration Manager SDK libraries. VBScript is a good choice for scripting Configuration Manager.

This documentation provides examples in C#, VBScript and, where appropriate, C++.


If you are programming with another .NET Framework language, use the C# examples for reference.
