I am a newbee to ATAPI and TAPI Per Se

do you have any sample projects for 3rd Party TAPI Use using yr .net wrapper for or c#?

TAPI doesn't really support 3rd party telephony directly, at least not in my opinion. The solution provided by Microsoft is to put the TSP onto a Windows Server box which is connected to the PBX/Switch/ACD and then use a special TSP on the client side to connect to it via the server. It always seemed kind of a lame approach to me. Here's an old support document about it:

The upside of this approach however is that the programming model is identical - so you can look at any 1st party TAPI code and it works in the 3rd party approach too because they are the same from the apps perspective.

I think I understand this bit. My assumption is that I itterate through the Lines and create a object for each line.

what I was actually looking for was some sample code using yr .net library, for opening multiple lines and getting events (specifically alerting and connected) for a specific line?

am I being a bit cheeky?

Not at all, there are some simple ones here (make sure to read ATAPI, not ITAPI3 which is for TAPI 3.0):

I also have a suite of simple testing samples - I need to upload them here. I'll see if I can find time today to do that.

Many thanks.
the following link is dead:

Also, should I be targetting .net 4?

Not sure where you got the link - I don't think it ever worked ;-)

Yes, ATAPI uses .NET4, but feel free to download the source and recompile it for whatever version you need - it works on 2.0 as well if you recompile it.

Make sure to grab the full source from the source code tab - it has several very simple examples of using the library.
