New Powertoy Released
Posted by: Dave Edson
The Microsoft Smart Devices Remote Tools Framework Power Toy 1.0 has been released to the web. Let's call it RTFx for short.
It's a framework to make it easier to write remote tools (like Remote Heapwalker, etc). All of the connectivity issues are done for you, and a unified shell is provided. Your code consists of data objects, view objects, and data collectors. RTFx does the rest.
You write the desktop-side components in C#, the device-side components are written in either C++ or C#.
Included with this powertoy is a new version of the Remote System Information, called RTFx SysInfo (attachment is a screen shot). Lots of samples are provided as well.
This blog is where we will support RTFx initially. If traffic grows, we can create a category just for RTFx.

I am very anxious to hear your feedback on this powertoy.
