Win32 APIs in ASP.NET application

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by =?Utf-8?B?TGVubnk=?=, Jan 16, 2004.

  1. Hello,

    I inherited a project from another team. They’re using Win32 APIs for some tasks, even though there’re equivalent .NET namespaces for the same functionality. Is it a good idea to use Win API? Is it a performance issue? Any other issues with that?

    Thanks

  2. IMHO, it is generally better to use the managed .Net classes. For one thing
    API calls are unmanaged. There are some situations in which performance
    might be improved significantly, but not many that I can think of.
