Dear Friends,

           I am using ARCGIS 9.3 version and .net Sdk.
I wand to develop some tools using axMapcontol, axTOCcontol, aToolbarcontrol -- Is it possible with the .net Sdk or not?

          If I want to develop tool using this, what to do? Please inform.

Thanks in advance.

You should install the ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit:

Here are the concepts:

Is there a specific question that you have that is not covered by the above topics?

Thanks for the information.
I don't have the ArcGIS Engine licence only I am having .net sdk which comes with ArcGIS Desktop application.
With out ArcGIS Engine licence, is it possible to develop stand alone applicaation using visual studio C#2008.

Engine was designed for developing standalone applications.  In later releases, the ArcGIS Runtime supersedes Engine.  These technologies require licenses to use.  If you want to develop standalone applications and don't want to pay for licenses then you probably need to look at open source software and not ESRI.

If your application can be an add-in, i.e. not the main UI, then you can use ArcGIS Explorer which is free.  If you have a desktop license then you can also develop an add-in for it as well.

axMapcontol, axTOCcontol, axToolbarcontrol all require an engine developer license.  This annoys me to no end since I have a pool of 26 arcinfos and 6 ArcViews and I still need to buy engines sdk license for each machine that are used (each developer + build servers.)  and they cannot be put on a license server, that even if engine is 10% of what our developers do.  You can build your own map control though with Arcgis desktop, I think someone (Neil?) had posted a link on how to do this back in 2011...  (maybe the old forum)
