For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.


You need to include the library files & include files of ATOM with VC++ 2008.

& Need to include the headers & Application ID in debug mode.

Then as well as you need to code it in either C or C++.

Please follow the book provided with the ATOM SDK.


Also will it be possible to use all the other c/c++ libraries which are comes with visual 2008

Like if i create UI with visual studio 2008 then will it work for atom .

Thanks for ur reply

regards hardik

Here is you can find a lot of information about development process -

In a few words you need:
- develop application (same as developing for any other window platform)
- get GUID from your dashboard
- download and install SDK
- integrate SDK in to your project using generated GUID for release version (you can use VS2008, all you need is just to include SDK headers and libraries)
- pack your application into MSI installer
- test your application localy
- upload your application via dashboard

thanks for reply
