The Images.Show (also known as the Windows XP to Windows 7 - XP2Win7) developer resource provides a tour of the unique Windows 7 technical features that enable developers to “light up” their applications on Windows 7. The Images.Show is a WPF application that runs on XP and Windows Vista. But the fun starts when you run the same application on Windows 7, which unlocks new technologies such as Taskbar, the Sensors and Location Platform, and Multitouch, as well as “old” Vista friends such as Application Recovery and Windows Search. This project shows that by exploiting Windows 7 features you can add a great deal of value to your application with relatively little effort and without sacrificing backward compatibility. We designed this developer resouces application as an “educational” project to show developers how to “light up” existing Windows applications by using built-in Windows 7 technologies without sacrificing backward compatibility for existing Windows XP customers. Our goals are to lower the bar for managed code developers who want to target Windows 7 native APIs and to show native code developers the new APIs. As a reference “educational” application, the application contains functionality that you do not normally find in regular applications, like a Crash button that will crash your application to demonstrate Windows 7 Restart Manager capabilities. Ohter features that we use in our application are: • Windows Search • UAC • Scheduled Task • Windows 7 Taskbar Integration • Transactional File System • IO Optimization • Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) • Microsoft Management Console • Windows 7 Libraries • Windows 7 Sensor and Location Platform • PowerShell • Preview Handler • Aero Glass • Trigger Start Services
