Windows Process Description:

File Description: The file windowsbase.dll is created for a Windows Presentation Foundation Base Library. The WPF is the graphical subsystem feature of the dotNET Framework 3.0, formerly called WinFX, and is directly related to XAML. It is pre-installed in Windows Vista, the latest version of the Microsoft Windows operating system. The Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is also available for installation on Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003.

The file windowsbase.dll helps provide a consistent programming model for building applications and provides a clear separation between the UI and the business logic. The file is applicable to all Windows-based applications. A Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application can be deployed on the desktop or hosted in a web browser. The file windowsbase.dll also enables rich control, design, and development of the visual aspects of Windows programs.

The file windowsbase.dll aims to unify a host of application services: user interface, 2D and 3D drawing, fixed and adaptive documents, advanced typography, vector graphics, raster graphics, animation, data binding, audio and video. Even though WinForms will continue to be widely used, WPF is now the preferred choice for the development of business applications, especially since the release of the dotNET Framework 3.5, Visual Studio 2008 and Expression Blend.

The file windowsbase.dll is associated with eXtensible Application Markup Language or XAML. The XAML is designed as a more efficient method of developing application user interfaces. The specific advantage that XAML brings to WPF is that XAML is a completely declarative language.

In a declarative programming language, the developer (or designer) describes the behavior and integration of components without the use of procedural programming. This allows someone with little or no traditional programming experience to create an entire working application.
