  The control system for Accelerators and Lasers In Combined Experiments (ALICE) under construction at Daresbury Laboratory uses EPICS and vxWorks on VME64x. The client software in use during the commissioning of the accelerator is based on PC consoles running Red Hat Linux 9. Synoptic displays and engineering panels are created using the Extensible Display Manager (EDM) and other standard EPICS extension software is used for archival, alarm handling etc. A similar EPICS based control system is being used for the commissioning of the Muon Ionisation Cooling Experiment (MICE) under construction at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. The Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS) control system uses a bespoke control system with client software on PC consoles running Microsoft Windows. We would like to employ a similar approach for the operational client software on ALICE and MICE with Channel Access (CA) clients running on Microsoft Windows PC consoles. This paper presents the .NET Channel Access interface developed at Daresbury and showcases .NET client applications being developed for both ALICE and MICE operations.
