The SmartComponent Library Desktop is a launcher Application for various tools of the SmartComponent Library framework. The Desktop application will make it easier for us to roll out "shortcuts" to launching new tools or resources to our customers. Customers will only need to create a single desktop shortcut to the "SmartComponent Library Desktop" and we can deploy additional items to this desktop.

When starting OpenEdge based tools from the Desktop (such as the Business Entity Designer or Tester) a new OpenEdge session (AVM) is launched and the startup parameters to the Desktop application are passed to the new instance. So in this sample the desktop.ini file centrally defines the startup parameters for all tools. Only the -p parameter is modified by the configuration of the too to start.
Our sample .NET assemblies package and assemblies.xml do currently not contain the assembly or a reference to this. Customers on OpenEdge 11.5 will find a version to this assembly in their "%DLC%\bin\infragistics\winforms" folder or in the Infragistics install folder "c:\Program Files (x86)\Infragistics\2014.2\Windows Forms".
