.NET

Microsoft’s strategy, announced in June 2000, to reorient its operating systems, developer tools, and productivity applications from the Component Object Model (COM) to the .NET Framework and its Common Language Runtime (CLR). The CLR supports multiple programming languages, such as Microsoft’s Visual C#, Visual Basic .NET, and Visual J#. Much of Microsoft’s marketing campaign for the .NET Framework and Visual Studio .NET focuses on support for Internet-enabled XML Web services. Microsoft Office 2003 installs version 1.1 of the .NET framework to support Excel 2003 and Word 2003. The .NET Framework is a reincarnation of Next Generation Windows Services (NGWS), the follow-up to Microsoft’s earlier Distributed iNternet Architecture (Windows DNA). See also CLR, COM, SOAP, and XML Web services.



Access 2003 Developer Extensions

The replacement for the Access related components of the Microsoft Office Developer edition (MOD). The extensions include a license for distribution of the runtime versions of MSAccess.exe and MSGraph.exe, a Package Wizard for creating Microsoft Installer packages (.msi files) for runtime applications, and two add-ins—Property Scanner and Custom Startup Wizard—for Access developers. See also MOD and VST.
