i like use this Framework for my Project created in Visual Studio 2010 Professional.

But it's not my favorid. So i try to use SharpDevelop 4 and got 2 problems.

  1. Windows 7 SDK for DotNet Path required, but some test make it run
  2. UNIT Testing does not work, it crash the Framework

Could someone help me to develop / run WAF in SharpDevelop 4 !

Hi fSardo,

The issues you describe here sounds to be a problem of SharpDevelop 4. This might come because you have created the project with Visual Studio 2010.

SharpDevelop doesn't support the VS Unit Testing Framework. But you can use other open-source frameworks like NUnit for your unit test.


The WPF Application Framework (WAF) itself doesn't have any dependencies to Visual Studio. Hence, you shouldn't have any problems to use WAF with SharpDevelop.

The WPF Application Framework (WAF) could be build include the sample projects.
