Add New Project Dialog Box

Use this dialog box to create a new project for either the current or a new solution. See How to: Create Multi-Project Solutions for step-by-step instructions. To access this dialog box, point to Add on the File menu and then click New Project.

Project Types

Displays the categories of projects available.

Templates

Displays project templates to create the initial files, references, code framework, property settings, and tasks appropriate for the selected project. When you select a template or a project type, a brief description of that item appears beneath the Project Types frame.

NoteNote:

If your anti-virus software displays an alert offering to block script that the project template or wizard is running, choose not to block script. If you choose to block script, Visual Studio shuts down. You can prevent this alert from showing when script is run by clearing the anti-virus software's setting for blocking script, however, changing this setting disables all script blocking, not just for Visual Studio.

In addition to using the templates that were installed when you installed Visual Studio, you can create your own templates or create a project from a downloaded template. For more information, see Creating Project and Item Templates and How to: Use a Starter Kit to Create a New Project.

Framework Version
.NET Framework Version Icon

Determines the .NET Framework version that the project should target. For more information, see Targeting a Specific .NET Framework.

Large Icons

Displays large icons for items in the Templates pane.

Small Icons

Displays small icons for items in the Templates pane.

Name

Specifies the unique identifier for projects in the destination root directory.

NoteNote:

For some project types, the Name box is unavailable because specifying the location sets the project name. For example, Web applications and XML Web services are located on a Web server and derive their name from the virtual directory specified on that server.

Names cannot contain the following characters:

  • Pound (#)

  • Percent (%)

  • Ampersand (&)

  • Asterisk (*)

  • Vertical bar (|)

  • Backslash (\)

  • Colon (:)

  • Double quotation mark (")

  • Less than (<)

  • Greater than (>)

  • Question mark (?)

  • Forward slash (/)

  • Leading or trailing spaces (' ')

  • Names reserved for Windows or DOS such as ("nul," "aux," "con," "com1," "lpt1," and so on)

Location

Enter the location where you want to create your project, choose an existing location from the list, or navigate to a location using Browse. By default, new projects are created in the Visual Studio projects location specified in the General, Projects and Solutions, Options Dialog Box.

Browse

Displays the Project Location dialog box, which lets you navigate to a new directory to save the project.
