Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video How to use the exercise files, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 11 Data Tools.
- [Voiceover] If you are a member of Lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. I've copied the exercise files to my desktop. Let's take a look. In order to use the exercises in this folder, you'll have to Visual Studio 2015 installed. For this course, you'll also need to have the latest update, which is called Update 3. Without Update 3 or newer, you won't be able to work with some of the database files. Each chapter is numbered and each video is numbered. If there's an exercise file available for a video, you'll find a matching numbered folder.
Here's Chapter 9, here's video number seven. This folder has a Start folder and a Done folder. The Done folder contains the final version of the project created in the video. I'll open the Start folder and double-click on this sln file. The sln file is the file that you open in Visual Studio. Since I already had it installed, it launched Visual Studio and opened my project. Now that you've seen how to open the exercise files, let's get started.
