Step-by-Step - A Complete Project

quick guide | home

Step-by-step guide to creating your first complete project.

This is an example of a project for a very common scenario of an application with some COM DLLs. A large fraction of in-house business applications and many shrink-wrapped programs fall into this category.

For this project we will use example files installed by the Manifest Maker setup into the Examples folder. If you did not install examples, please do so now.

It is helpful, although not required, to read Step-by-step guide to creating your first manifest before reading this chapter.

Let us look in the project directory:

All three programs are in the project target directory. There is also a .Manifest for each program and the project file we just saved a moment ago.

There is also a new subdirectory: My.Example.Project:

This folder contains the two DLLs we used in our project and another .Manifest file.

How does it all work together?
