I finally got back around to my demo solution. We run the Distributor as a stand-alone and would like to continue to so therefore I thought it would be good to validate that setup on 3.0. The configuration and setup is much improved since you don't need any special dlls anymore. The one thing you will run into is that when running in this mode, it is assumed that you will run the Distributor on another machine. This is fine, but you'll need a license and if you don't have one, you'll need to get a temporary one.
