Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Use the exercise files, part of Visual Studio 2017: First Look.
- [Instructor] If you are a member of lynda.com or LinkedIn Learning you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The files are in a folder named exercise files. Put this folder in a location that makes sense for you or computer. This is how I organize my copy. I have a courseware folder on my C drive then a child folder for each course. And here is my exercise files. In order to use the exercises in this folder, you'll have to have Visual Studio 2017 installed.
I'll show you how to do that in the course. Each chapter is numbered. I'll open chapter number five. If there is an exercise available for a video in this chapter, you'll find a matching numbered folder. Let's take a look at the files for video number 3. This is the start folder for their project. In some videos there's also a done folder that contains the final version of the project created in the video. I'll open the start folder. Inside this folder you'll see there's an SLN file.
This is the same file format that Microsoft uses for Visual Studio 2015. I happen to have Visual Studio 2015 and 2017 installed on this machine. So to open this, I can go and right-click on this file and choose open with the Visual Studio Version Selector. If it doesn't open with Visual Studio 2017, you can always open it using the open dialog inside Visual Studio. After the project open, I can see the solution and its projects. I encourage you to build the project that assures that the project is up to date and ready to use in the course.
Now that you're seeing how to open the exercise files, let's get started.
