        The Sample Code Generator (XSDObjectGen) tool takes an XSD schema as input and generates sample code showing how to mark up C# and VB.Net classes so that when serialized with the XML serializer, the resulting XML will be valid according to the original schema. This update introduces support for Visual Studio 2005, partial classes and the .NET framework 2.0, maintains backward compatiblity for Visual Studio 2003, fixes some documentation changes and corrects bugs reported by users.

If Visual Studio 2003 is present, will also install a new XSD project type in the C# and VB.NET project types. For Visual Studio 2005, installs an add on for invoking code generation from schemas that are added to the project

        More detailed usage instructions are provided in the accompanying documentation (XsdObjectGen.doc).
