RDSGettingStarted

RDS = the Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio (in this case 2008 R3)

Run Run DSS Node first to get a DSS (Decentralized Software Service) running which the RDS needs to run. Follow the instructions in the Documentation Getting Startedsection.

Then explore the menus displayed on http://localhost:50000/

The top section, system services, are the services installed on the PC needed to run the RDS. The middle and last sections, developer resources & about Microsoft Robotics, links to the msdn.microsoft.com/en-ie/robotics/ and various other pages.

The MS VPL Tutorial seems to not be the best place to start. A whole bunch of stuff happens but it expects the robot to be connected rather than simulated so I'll need to get the basic RDS talking to Mindstorms first...
