      Prism provides guidance designed to help you more easily design and build rich, flexible, and easy to maintain Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) desktop applications and Silverlight Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) and Windows Phone 7 applications. Using design patterns that embody important architectural design principles, such as separation of concerns and loose coupling, Prism helps you to design and build applications using loosely coupled components that can evolve independently but which can be easily and seamlessly integrated into the overall application. Such applications are known as often referred to as composite applications.
  • System Requirements

    Supported Operating System

    Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP Professional Edition

      WPF applications built using this guidance will require the .NET Framework 4.0 to run, and Silverlight applications will require the .NET Framework for Silverlight 4. Before you can use the Prism Library, the following must be installed:
      • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional, Premium, or Ultimate edition
      • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 (installed with Visual Studio 2010)
      • Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio 2010 (required for Silverlight development; includes the developer Silverlight runtime)
      You may also want to install the following:
      • Project Linker 2.2
  • Install Instructions

      Detailed installation instructions are provided in the Readme file. We recommend all developers read this document.
      To install the Prism assets, right-click the Prism.Source.exe file, and then click Run as administrator. This will extract the source code, binaries, and documentation into the folder of your choice. The Prism Library signed assemblies will be placed in the following folders:
      • {prism}\Bin\Desktop
      • {prism}\Bin\Silverlight
      • {prism}\Bin\Phone
      Prism provides a batch file to register the Prism Library signed binaries with Visual Studio. Registering with Visual Studio is not required, but for many developers, doing so simplifies referencing the Prism Library assets in their own projects. After registering, the Prism Library assets will appear in the Visual Studio Add References dialog box when adding a reference. For more information, see the Readme file.
