Do you have a product that runs on Windows Vista that you'd like to showcase to potential customers?

We now offer the Demo Readiness Toolkit (DRT) for Windows Vista, which helps you build the skills needed to effectively demo your application on Windows Vista to your customers.  The DRT is a way for you to create customized demonstrations that highlight your product and Windows Vista at the same time.  You don't need a dedicated demonstration PC to do this -- the DRT allows you to exhibit your demo on your own PC instead.

Included in the DRT are sample documents, demo files, sample applications, shortcuts and more to ensure that you have the appropriate environment to highlight your creation.  You can also build a demo script for consumer or business scenarios that, for example, underscore Windows Vista's advances in say, parental controls or network management, respectively.

And best of all, it's free.  Nor do you even have to be a Microsoft Partner to access and use these tools.

Using the DRT is a process that works; I know, because we have an internal version of the DRT that is available to anyone working at MS who wants to give a demonstration of Windows Vista, and I've used our internal version myself, many times.

Once you've created your own DRT, you can enter it into the DRT Challenge for the chance to win prizes like a Zune or a trip to this year's Worldwide Partner Conference.  Check out this video to learn how to get started.
