In my Vista sessions I focus on accessing native APIs form managed code. A few times now people ask me if there is an API browser of some sort... you know, like the API Text Viewer from the VB6 times... I found this replacement on the web but haven’t personally tried it. Frankly, I don’t know of a Microsoft one so if there is a replacement hiding somewhere and you know about it please share a pointer!

So the alternative I offer is... the alternative I have always offered! The title gives it away:
If you read my older entry then you’ll know where to go to get the interop book.

There is also a Visual Studio 2005 add-in for the pinvoke wiki site, but I haven’t personally tried it. Get it from gotdotnet.

I plan to update the wiki with Vista API definitions at some point (the power API I mentioned previously is already there). I’ve added this to my TODO list (item # 88345602), but if you feel you’d like to take on the task, please go for it (Vista dllimports all over my blog entries since May this year)!
