Outlook Sample: Outlook Social Connector Provider
This project contains a sample Outlook Social Connector (OSC) provider and several provider templates (in C++, C#, and Visual Basic) for Microsoft Outlook 2010, Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, and Microsoft Office Outlook 2003.

The sample provider is named TestProvider and is for demonstration purposes only. It does not connect to a specific real social network, but does implement all the members required by the interfaces that a provider must implement. Each interface is represented by a class. TestProvider uses Visual C# and requires Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 or Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and Outlook 2010, Outlook 2007, or Outlook 2003.

The provider templates are available for use when you build a provider in the language of your choice. To minimize the download size of the provider and to minimize provider load time, you should build a production provider by using C++. If you are developing a provider for users who already have the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed on their computers, you should also consider writing a managed provider by using Visual C# or Visual Basic.

For more information about the sample and templates, including installation instructions, see OSC Sample Provider and Templates in the Outlook Social Connector 1.1 Provider Reference in the MSDN Library. To download the current version of the Outlook Social Connector, see Update for Outlook Social Connector (KB983403), 32-Bit Edition, or Update for Outlook Social Connector (KB983403), 64-bit Edition, in the Microsoft Download Center. To download providers for the Outlook Social Connector, see Connect to your favorite social network using Outlook.
