Getting Started

You need to have Visual Studio 2017 or 2019 installed.

Please Note: The initial beta is only available as a .Net assembly for Windows Desktop development, or as a Windows Runtime Component. Running DataStore as a separate process is not available in this beta.

You can either use the API directly, or, if you are targeting .NET, you can use T4 templates to generate an Object Model from the ItemTypes, AttributeTypes and AssociationTypes of a DataStore.


  1. Download DataStore.
  2. If you wish to use Object Model Generation, install the DataStoreT4Directives extension.
  3. Activate DataStore
  4. Create a Windows Desktop project or Create a Windows Universal project

There are 2 sample solutions on GitHub which show how DataStore can be utilized in Desktop and UWP environments.
