Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Documenting your code, part of Visual Studio 2010 Essential Training.
Creating an external help file is a common type of documentation. Note:…For this movie, I am not talking about help for the end user of the application,…but rather about code documentation.…This documentation is intended for other programmers to use, to get a better…understanding of a code API.…In order to build the Help files later in this movie, you need to install some…additional open source tools.…These tools are available in your Exercise File folder, in the Installers folder.…
There are three tools that you need to install:…GhostDoc, Sandcastle, and SandcastleBuildersSetup.…Sandcastle itself is the help-generation tool from Microsoft.…It only works at the command line.…SandcastleBuilder is a graphics interface that works with Sandcastle, and I am…going to show that later in this movie.…GhostDoc is a plug-in for Visual Studio that helps you write the XML comments you need.…So install those and then continue with the movie.…Now I am in Visual Studio.…I am inside a project called BookLib, which is inside the Documenting Solution.…

Q: Which edition of Visual Studio 2010 do I need to follow along in this course?
A: The course is taught with Visual Studio 2010 Professional, but can also be used with the Premium or Ultimate editions. The Express editions of Visual Studio, including Visual Basic 2010 Express, Visual C# 2010 Express, and Visual C++ Express, are not covered in this course.
Q: I'm attempting to download the exercise files for this course, and my virus protection is blocking me from unzipping the downloaded file. Are the files corrupted?
A: The alert is a false-positive message. Your antivirus software is detecting the active code included in the exercise files, which in some ways resembles viral code. There is nothing to be alarmed about and you can ignore the warning. This is common among coding courses and environments.
