Microsoft Office Interactive Developer Map

The Microsoft Office Interactive Developer Map is a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application that helps developers visualize the different programs, servers, services, and tools that will help them build solutions. It allows them to drill down to each product and technology and learn about new features, objects, Web services, namespaces, and schemas required to extend Microsoft Office and build custom Office Business Applications (OBAs).

Install the Microsoft Office Interactive Developer Map Version 2
Windows Vista Users
Install the Microsoft Office Interactive Map via ClickOnce.
Note: Firefox users will need to install the FFClickOnce extension first.

Windows XP Users
The following prerequisites are required:
.NET Framework 3.0
.NET Framework 2.0

If these components are already installed, you can install the Microsoft Office Interactive Map via ClickOnce. Otherwise, install the prerequisites and run the application.

Publishing Communicator Web Access 2007 through ISA Server 2006

from the ISA Server Team Blog:
Recently (July 2007), a deployment lab guide for Microsoft® Communicator Web Access 2007 was published on Microsoft Download Center. That white paper will guide you through the configuration of ISA Server 2006 and Microsoft Office Communicator Web Access 2007 (I will refer to CWA 2007 in this post) to allow single sign on authentication. The scenario described in the document uses LDAP to access the Active Directory® and validate user credentials. After that, the user will be automatically signed in to CWA 2007.

However, the entry page that ISA Server 2006 publishes externally is the ISA Server 2006 page, which uses forms-based authentication. This means that we don’t have the Microsoft Communicator Web Access 2007 interface published. Some customers might want to offer their users a single-interface experience to access CWA 2007 through Internet and Intranet.

Here is the rest of the story.

Cool tool for drawing out SMS\SCCM environments.

They also have an updated SCCM 2007 capacity planner on the site to download.
