you can download the COMPLETE, Microsoft .NET Framework SDK (Software Developemt Toolkit), for FREE (All of .NET, not just C#) complete with COmmand Line compilers, and documentation/Help files.  what costs the big $$$ is Visual Studio.NET, not .NET itself.  YOu can 'build' programs with Notepad, and then compile and run them (it rally does work that way - I have done it), using the FREE .NET Framework SDK.

OR, checkout

http://www.icsharpcode.net/

there you will find a FREE C#/VB.NET IDE (a early version of a possible competitor for VS.NET) you can downoad either the exe, or the COMPLETE Source code (in C#), or both.

It is still an early BETA version, and is still quite rough around the edges, but the cost is right.

On the right side, in the Downloads box, click "Get the Microsoft .NET Framework"

BTW, this was the first result returned by Google on the search terms "microsoft .net framework".

If it doesn't, don't blame Arthur, that would be a Microsoft problem.

I won't blame Arthur, but could someone please tell me how to compile the notepad files when I'm done writing the program.  I got the Microsoft.Net Framework SDK installed but I can't figure out how to use it.  Please don't tell me to check the help section, that I have already tried.

the command line compiler for C# is csc.exe.  To compile prog.cs, type

csc prog.cs
