I havent worked with that Salesforce API before, so I am a bit stuck on how to connect to the salesforce service.
So far I understood that I have to generate a wsdl file for my account or rather the account of my customer (step 1). So far, so good.
But now the Quickstart (http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api/Content/sforce_api_quickstart_steps.htm) says something about "Import the WSDL File into your development platform" (step 2).
How do I import a wsdl file into Visual Studio 2008? I cant find the "Add Web Reference" option which is mentioned in the quickstart.
And if I only need to use the WSDL, what use has the Salesforce Dotnet API package which can be downloaded from the salesforce website (http://wiki.developerforce.com/index.php/Salesforce_Dotnet_API)?
Are there any gotchas I should watch out for when developing applications that use the salesforce API?
