Summary of Issue: Linking to old version of Inspect Objects
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Note: this also affects Flash2 since it points to the same resource.
The link "http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms695716.aspx"  Microsoft Active Accessibility 2.0 SDK points to an much older version of the tool.

Note: Documentation should also be provided on what to look for with the tool. I will submit a separate item for this.

Proposed Change:
Change link to point to Microsoft Windows SDK Version 7.0 (for Windows XP) and 7.1 for Vista and Up.

7.0 URL: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=18950
7.1 URL: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=8279

Note: while SDK v7.1 can be installed on Windows XP, it's version of Inspect Objects is not compable with Windows XP as it only supports iAccessible2 while the 7.0 version supports MSAA as iAccessible2.
