What's New?

Support for Amazon EC2 API version 2009-11-30 This release introduces Spot Instances. Spot Instances are a new way to purchase and consume Amazon EC2 instances. They enable you to bid on unused Amazon EC2 capacity and run any resulting instances for as long as your bid exceeds the current Spot Price. The Spot Price changes periodically based on supply and demand. Spot Instances are complementary to On-Demand Instances and Reserved Instances, providing another option for you to obtain compute capacity. For more information, go to the Spot Instances Concepts section of the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud Developer Guide or Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
Support for HEAD requests in GetPreSignedUrlRequest The GetPreSignedUrlRequest class now has a Verb property to specify whether the request is made using HTTP HEAD or GET (default).

Known Issues

Installation Requires Administrator Privileges The default install location is %PROGRAMFILES%, which on most computers is "c:\program files". In order to install files to the default location, the MSI must be run by an Administrator. If you don't have Administrator privileges on the machine, please change the install location to something like "c:\Documents and Settings\<you>\AWS SDK for .NET", and the install will complete successfully. If you are running on Vista, your personal folder is similar to "c:\users\<you>\".

Installing the SDK in a custom folder requires templates to re-add the AWS .NET library If you install the AWS SDK for .NET in a location other than the default, let's say "c:\users\sdktester\AWS SDK for .NET", the built-in project templates and samples fail to compile due to a missing reference. Please update the References section of your Visual Studio solution as follows:
  1. Remove the existing AWSSDK reference.
  2. Right-click on References and select Add a Reference.
  3. Browse to the new install location's bin folder (c:\users\sdktester\AWS SDK for .NET\bin).
  4. Select the AWSSDK.dll from within the folder.
  5. Compile -> Run -> Explore AWS.
Uninstalling the SDK produces "Unknown Publisher" message On Windows Vista, uninstalling the MSI results in an "Unknown Publisher" dialog even though the installer is signed by Amazon Web Services. This is a known Windows Installer bug on Windows Vista, and is documented here:
