all the C# source code and binary executables for
the examples in that specific chapter.
The files can be extracted with almost any unzip utility.
- Views library downloads
- The Views installation link downloads a Zip archive containing
an executable install program.
Running this program will effectively make the Views library available
to all programs that link to it.
- The Views source links produces a Zip archive containing
the source files for the Views library,
as well as batch files for compiling the source
into DLL and .NET module files.
You do not need to download this archive if you instead download
and use the install program.
- From Chapter 5 onwards many of the examples make use of the Views library.
In order to successfully compile and run the examples from these chapters
you will need to install the library as described above.
- More information about the Views library can be found on
- A brief synopsis of the commands needed to compile a C# program
with Views and run the program on Windows is on
- If you wish to use Views with the Visual Studio interactive
development environment, instructions may be found by visiting

Views installation program 367KB -- installs version 1.28.
Note: If you had a previous version of Views (1.25 or lower) installed
you must make sure you run the uninstall.bat script from the Views1.xx
program folder. The installer for versions 1.26 and later has been
entirely remade, and it is important that you remove old versions
before installing any newer release.
Removing Views 1.26 and higher will be done from Add/remove programs
in control panel, just like for most Windows applications.
Note 2: It is recommended that you choose to install for 'everyone',
not 'just me' (which is the default), if you have administrative rights
on the machine you are installing to.
- Views source 33KB
(Note: you do not need to download the Views source code;
the Views installation program is all you need.
The source code is made available to developers under
the Gnu lesser public licence.)
