C# and Visual Basic applications on Windows can call appropriate APIs to interact with the CDF files, through the CDF native .DLL. The APIs are based on the original C-based, extended CDF Standard Interface set, which has been used by users for years. The CDF library is based on the latest release CDF V3.8.1 . The APIs and CDF library were built for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. Select the proper version for your system. APIs for VB are built around the C#'s.

This package includes:

  • C#-CDF assemblies (signed .DLLs) for APIs, base class and utility
  • CDF library (.DLL)
  • C#-CDF and VB-CDF Reference Manuals in PDF
  • Batch files for compile and assemblies operations
  • Sample test programs
  • Help information

This release is packaged as either a self-extracting installer or a zip file. Select one of the following files, based on the 32 or 64-bit Windows system you're running on. All are made from MS Visual Studio (VS) 2015.
