Omar AL Zabir[MVP] My life with .NET

StickOut is a desktop sticky note application with multi-user support and Outlook integration. It is a .NET Framework 2.0 Windows Forms application that uses .NET Remoting to communicate with other StickOut users and exchange sticky notes with them. It uses the new .NET Framework 2.0 IPC Channel for communicating between Microsoft Outlook and the StickOut process. The Outlook Add-in allows you to stick anything out to the desktop from Outlook including e-mails, notes, tasks, appointments, etc., as sticky notes. Care has been taken to reduce the memory footprint of a .NET application significantly and to make a fast and smooth user experience. This article chronicles my first day of planning the application, through subsequent design, development, testing, and deployment days, revealing the evolution of the application, and the complications I dealt with at each step. You will read about lots of .NET tricks, deployment and versioning problems, Visual Studio tricks, and some other non-developmentā€“related tricks that might help you to boost your daily development work.

Hi Omar, I always read your blogs and I think you produce quality work. I've been reading the stickout on msn since yesterday and I tried to complile the code in VS2005 but somehow fails. I keep getting errors saying that word, excel, and Micorsoft.Office references are not found even though i did add the references manually. I had to go on sourceforge to get all your other files; addins and what not. Any suggestions
