Actuality of this project

Apr 5, 2014 at 6:31 AM

I am working on an application based on this kit and I like the CAB mechanism. But:

I am worry a bit about the actuality of this project and the community (discussions).

To create applications faster, I write a template that generates code using this kit. The
application can be created from an UML model and a prototyping step beforehand creating
this code. (

My questions:

Are there actually any users out here using this kit and like to keep using it?

Who are these users?

Any more sample applications created with the kit - show cases?

Thanks, Lothar

Hi Lothar,

we have a major product running with DX/CAB, see

for some screenshots.

So CAB/DX does what expected. But there's not really a community. All these abandoned MS technologies are in a limbo state. They still work but you can't expect a big community or any new features. And the people who (still) use these technologies are more the typical enterprise developers, and not OSS guys. On the other hand,,i don't know any framework which gives you the same productivity/flexibility as WinForms+DX+CAB.

Nice to get some feedback, even that it is not much. It is a sign that I shouldn't ignore.

Thank you, I'll take a look.
