All of the above do not directly, concisely address what you are
after, i.e. what to do and not do to have a Vista compliant and
deployment friendly application. I am somewhat surprised that
I could not put the finger on the "certified for" 1-2-3 for Vista
applications. (Of course, some is implied by some things, like use
of ClickOnce install, etc.). It is pretty easy to find the logo'd
software requirements/specifications for W2k3 and earlier, but
I am not finding the Vista versions.
Perhaps your best bet is a some reading at the above links, and
also the one below, and also posting to the MSDN forums. http://msdn.microsoft.com/windowsvis...developerstory
Seriously, try the MSDN forums or if you are a partner that channel
also as I can find now dead links to a draft of the requirements for
Certified for Windows Vista cobranding (3 months old and now gone)
so something should be available (soon).
