- 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. Before you can use the Exercise Files in this folder, you'll have to have Visual Studio 2015 installed. Each chapter is numbered, and within each chapter folder, is a set of numbered folders that represent each video in the chapter. Look inside this folder, you could see a Start folder and a Done folder.
In this example, I have neither of those folders. I just have this single folder with this Debug.Mvc.sln file. This is affiliated with Visual Studio, so when I to double click on it, it will launch Visual Studio. Now that you've seen how to open the Exercise Files, let's get started.
