Online APIs
« on: November 17, 2012, 01:42:52 AM »
I don't want to have to install the SDK to access all the APIs.
I have searched but can't find the link to microsoft's location of them.

Most of my source code is "unavailable" right now. I did a search of the old forum with i as the search term and Magnum as the user.
I want to make sure it lists all my posts.

Thanks,
             Andy
Take care,

You can search by keywords or function names in the upper right corner.

You can also search Google for the function name and 90% of the time the MSDN link will be first up.

Also, if you do install the SDK, go into custom settings and only put in the Desktop Documentation... that's about 1/3 the size of the whole thing.

An ISO image is...  HERE  <--- that's a link, click it
Hope that helps...

I tried to download an older SDK version and they substituted something new that is hard to use.
I will try to find the older version.

Fearless,

Can I use that package to convert those hqx and hqi files to chm help files so I can uninstall the SDK ?
I would want to be able to search all the help files at one time too.

Thanks,

Did you follow the link I gave you?   
 
Go back to my first message and click on the link marked HERE ... that will take you to a page where you can download an ISO file of the entire SDK.  Burn the thing to a DVD or use Magic ISO to extract the files.  Install the documentation only ... it uses about 1.5gb of space and gives you the entire SDK with a Help Browser that is indexed for content and functions... click the index tab ... Type in the name of the function and click... real easy to use.
