Download and install the AWS .NET SDK as follows:

  1. Go to http://aws.amazon.com/sdkfornet.
  2. Click the Download button on the top right corner of the page. Your browser will prompt you to save the file.
  3. Open the saved installer to begin the installation process and follow the on-screen instructions.

By default, the AWS SDK for .NET is installed in the Program Files directory, which requires administrator privileges. You can install the AWS SDK for .NET as a non-administrator if you choose a different installation directory.

Starting a New Project

The AWS SDK for .NET has three project templates you can use to build a new project on Amazon Web Services:

  • AWS Console Project—Creates a console application that references the AWS .NET library (AWSSDK.dll) with a sample Program.cs file that makes a basic request to Amazon S3, Amazon SimpleDB, and Amazon EC2.
  • AWS Web Project—Creates an ASP.NET application that references the AWS .NET library (AWSSDK.dll) with a sample Program.cs file that makes a basic request to Amazon S3, Amazon SimpleDB, and Amazon EC2.
  • AWS Empty Project—Creates a console application that references the AWS .NET library (AWSSDK.dll), but does not include any code in the Program.cs file.

The general process to creating a new project based on a project template is similar across Visual Studio editions, but we’ll go through the steps for Visual Studio Professional 2008.

Creating a New Project in Visual Studio Professional Edition 2008

  1. Open Visual Studio.
  2. Click New -> Project from the File menu. The New Project dialog box opens.
  3. Select “AWS” in the list of project types, select the project template you want to use, enter a project name, and then click OK.
  4. On project creation, the template prompts you for your Access Key ID and Secret Access Key. Enter these security credentials, and then click OK. The template automatically configures the project with your security credentials.

NOTE: For the AWS Console Project and AWS Empty Project, your security credentials are added to the App.config file. For the AWS Web Project, your security credentials are added to the Web.config file.

Running the Project

You can run the project immediately after the project is created by pressing the F5 key (or selecting Start Debugging from the Debug menu).

The AWS Console project will look like this:

The AWS Web Project output will look like this:
