Convert into a production project

You can remove SketchFlow references from a SketchFlow project to convert it into a production project. The following procedures describe how to convert a SketchFlow prototype into a production-ready project.

  1. Back up your project.

  2. In the Projects panel, right-click the top project folder (for example, WPFPrototype1), and then click Open Folder in Windows Explorer.

  3. In Windows Explorer, right-click the .csproj file (for example, WPFPrototype1.csproj), click Open With, and then click Notepad.

  4. In the text file, locate and then delete the following two lines (capability flags):

    <ExpressionBlendPrototypingEnabled>false</ExpressionBlendPrototypingEnabled>
    <ExpressionBlendPrototypeHarness>true</ExpressionBlendPrototypeHarness>
    
  5. Save and close the text file.

  6. In the References folder, locate and right-click Microsoft.Expression.Prototyping.Runtime.dll, and then click Remove from Project.

  7. In the Projects panel, right-click the next project folder (for example, WPFPrototype1Screens), and then click Open Folder in Windows Explorer.
