I was thinking about buying WHS, but I see I cannot run there executable apps.
I want to use this server for my game.
I have written the server in C++ and it works on Win XP.
But I've read that on WHS it's hard to run executable apps.
So what is the method to do it? And what means "break the integrity"?
And my last question: how can I write my own add-in?
If it's possible, I will try it ;)
Thank you in advance.
How many people can have socket connection to my server(not console connections)?
I have read that only 10, but they propably are console connections.
So are there any restrictions about that?
You can download the trial of Windows Home Server at:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/windowshomeserver/eval.mspx
Also here is the MSDN guide for developing on Windows Home Server. Best done with C# or VB.net but I think you can also do it with managed C++:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc952481(v=MSDN.10).aspx
Sam Wood does a good guide on Windows Home Server Add-In development:http://blog.tentaclesoftware.com/archive/2008/12/05/quothello-worldquot-windows-home-server-add-in-part-1.aspx
Max socket connections probably won't be your issue - but if you want to know more google up C10K:http://www.kegel.com/c10k.html
