Resource Page Description
Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate samples demonstrate Office 2010 development projects, tools, and techniques by using the .NET Framework 3.5 and the .NET Framework 4. Samples include Excel, Word and Outlook solutions. Each sample is available in both Visual Basic and C#.

SharePoint 2007 Sequential Workflow Sample
When a document is uploaded the workflow is automatically started and a task is immediately created. The workflow then goes into a wait state until the task is updated. If the task is marked completed the workflow then completes.
These samples use .NET Framework 3.5. Why don't you let me target .NET Framework 4 Beta 1?
With this Beta 1 release of Visual Studio 2010, the Office projects only work with .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and Client Framework 3.5 SP1. A later release of Visaul Studio 2010 will support Office Development with the .NET Framework 4 and the Client Framework 4.
Why don't you offer samples for Office 2010?
These samples for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 will only work with the 2007 Office System including Outlook, Word, Excel and SharePoint Server. Future releases of Visual Studio 2010 will support Office 2010.
