Project Glidepath is a MicroISV Evangelism program that delivers the workflow-based guidance, sample code, content and technology you need to create successful applications for Windows Vista.
The release of Windows Vista will create a new wave of demand for applications that MicroISVs supply. We at Microsoft know how many new features and APIs we have added to Windows Vista as well as we understand how challenging it is to start and keep a MicroISV business running.
Project Glidepath is designed to provide the knowledge you, as a MicroISV, need to be successful by providing step-by-step instructions for everything from how to get started with Windows Presentation Foundation to how to write and publish a press release. Please give Project Glidepath a test drive and let us know what you think.

Note: Part of the ProjectGlidepathSetup process gives you the opportunity to change the SQL Server 2005 connection string. By default the string is configured to point to a default named instance (.SQLExpress) of SQL Server 2005 Express edition. You can change the string to point to any instance of any edition of SQL Server 2005. Some versions of SQL Server 2005 do not support the "User Instance=True" option so you may need to remove that from the end of the connection string.
