        Instructions for use:

        The installation creates the directory PDSExtension_NET in the installation directory, which contains the Readme.txt, Install.BAT, and BuildPDSExtension_NET.doc files. Follow the directions in Readme.txt to modify the Install.BAT file before you use it to install the sample database scripts on the computer that hosts SQL Server for Project Server. You can also manually install the database scripts by entering the commands in a Command Prompt window.

        The subdirectories PdsDirect, PdsExtension, and PdsRegister contain the .NET source files; the PdsExtension\bin\Debug\PdsExtension.dll assembly includes the base class for building PDS extensions. The Samples subdirectory includes example PDS request and reply examples, and Transact SQL scripts for creating stored procedures and views.

        Installation also saves a backup file ManagedCodePDSExtension.exe in the installation subdirectory PDS Downloads. To re-install the files, double-click PDS Downloads\ManagedCodePDSExtension.exe.
