To all,

I have downloaded the .NET Framework Software Development Kit (SDK) version 2.0 and there doesn’t seem to be a csc.exe.

I have C# Express installed, but I am just learning the language and it is my experience that to really learn a language it is best learned without the assistance of a fancy GDE.

So I just want a cmd prompt.

Additionally the book I am using is an older copy of Jesse Liberty’s ‘Programming C#’ (O’Reilly, 2001) and the examples use csc.exe.

From what I can tell it should be under ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\Bin’, but it isn’t.

Help
