      This download contains a code sample for use with the MSDN article, "Building Office 2003 Research Services That Work Offline." To view this article, click the link available from the Related Resources area.

      The article explores a practical approach to develop and deploy research services that work in an offline mode. This gives users the benefit of research services whether they are in their office plugged into the network or are writing a proposal on a plane without network connectivity.

      To work through this demonstration, you need Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003. With Visual Studio .NET, we use the wizards to build a simple, custom Microsoft Windows service that launches Cassini, a managed code Web server that is described in the article, on the local computer. This Web server hosts the research provider consumed by the research task pane in Office 2003 editions. The code samples are provided in Microsoft Visual C# development language.
