        The Microsoft Surface SDK, Workstation Edition, includes a simulator (called Surface Simulator) that replicates the Microsoft Surface user interface on a workstation. Surface Simulator, along with the Microsoft Visual Studio project templates that are included in the Microsoft Surface SDK, enables you to create and test Microsoft Surface touch-enabled applications on a workstation instead of on a Microsoft Surface unit.

        Important: If you develop a Microsoft Surface application on a workstation, the final testing step is to run and test your application on a Microsoft Surface unit.
