Hello, in the Developer`s Guide says: "To obtain the example applications, go to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=189009" but there it is the page to download the pdf of the guide, where can I download the example applications referenced in the guide? Thanks.

I'm not aware of any sample applications released for EntLib5.  We'll ask the entlib team if they have plans to do so.  You can check out the quickstart that comes with entlib4.1 source code although the creation of entlib objects in that version is different from entlib5 and a few API changes.   Anyway, if you have questions, just feel free to post it here.

The developer's guide is still a release candidate, we haven't posted the example code from it yet.

Hi gurdiel,

Just would like to give you an update that the entlib team has already released the C# code samples for the developers guide and can be downloaded here http://entlib.codeplex.com/releases/view/46741#DownloadId=140302.

Happy coding :-)

The current download link is not working...

It doesn't download sample applications, it downloads "EntLib.chm" (a help file). That file does not work. Every help topic you click shows the error page:

Navigation to the webpage was canceled

This is very frustrating. Why can't there just be a link that says "Sample Applications" that downloads a zip file ? I'm starting to regret buying this book if I can't even find the sample applications - which are mentioned on several pages so far.

I just tried it and I was able to download the zip file.
