.NET Gadgeteer Core includes the core libraries and templates for Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer. This is a prerequisite for end users to build and deploy .NET Gadgeteer projects. For module developers, it includes a Module Template that makes it very quick and easy to build .NET Gadgeteer software libraries for new hardware modules.
This installer puts the .NET Gadgeteer core library (gadgeteer.dll) in the NETMF 4.1 Assembly Folders (so it can be referenced from a NETMF project via "Add Reference"). It also puts two project templates into the New Project dialog in Visual Studio/Visual C# Express under the Gadgeteer tab - a Blank Template with a generic .NET Gadgeteer application, and the Module Template which includes instructions for implementing the "device driver" library required for modules to work with .NET Gadgeteer - this template auto-builds MSI installers for modules which can be distributed to end users.
The .NET Gadgeteer Core does NOT include libraries for specific hardware modules/mainboards, so by itself this installer does not allow users to use .NET Gadgeteer hardware.
If you are a prospective module or mainboard builder you should also look at the Module Builder's Guide
, which includes the full specifications for what it means to be ".NET Gadgeteer compatible" and other helpful examples and guidelines, and feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
