Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Visual Studio 2015 Essentials 01: Exploring the Visual Studio Ecosystem.
- If you are a member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. I have copied the exercise files to my desktop. Let's take a look. Each video is numbered. If there is an exercise available for a video, you'll find a matching numbered folder. Inside each numbered folder are the individual exercise files. Let's look at the files for Video 15. This is the starter folder for the project. In some videos, there is also a Finished folder containing the final version of the project created in the video.
I'll open the starter folder. Inside this folder, you'll see there is an .sln file. This is the file that you open in Visual Studio or Blend for Visual Studio. Since I have Visual Studio installed on this computer, I can double click on the .sln file and it will launch Visual Studio. Now that you've seen how to open the exercise files, let's get started.
