Windows Live ID Client 1.0 SDK


We are excited to introduce the final version of Windows Live ID for client applications!
The Windows Live ID Client 1.0 SDK provides a managed API for Windows Live sign-in. Included in the release is a sample application together with its source code so that you can build your own client applications.

Use of the SDK is governed by the Windows Live SDK License Agreement at

• No need to worry about the technical details of authentication! The Windows Live ID authentication service manages this process for you.
• Don’t bother worrying about how to store and retrieve user account information! The Windows Live ID service uses the same functionality as Messenger to cache the user name and/or password for use in later user sign-ins.
• By enabling Windows Live accounts to directly sign in to your site, any of the hundreds of millions of users who have a Windows Live ID can become a user of your site.

The SDK is a work in progress, so we appreciate your feedback!
