The instructions shown (Last edited Oct 29, 2012 at 12:40 AM by vladkalos, version 14) are mixed with a previous version, and are thus confusing.
See my comments in Discussions for a bit of help.

where I can find the shell source code?

I get this error "Could not find file or assembly 'Microsoft.Data.Services'...", when I run the shell.exe
What am I doing wrong?

The steps here indicate a System_NET_HandlerName parameters, but only the following show up on the terminal: System_NET_ApplicationName, Expert_TickCounterName, System_NET_Server, System_NET_Port, System_NET_Discriminator. Is that a typo, or maybe did I get the wrong version? I downloaded the 2.0 Beta zip. Thanks!
