Windows Application Template

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

The Windows Application project template in Visual Basic, Visual C#, and Visual J# lays the groundwork for a standard Windows application. For more information on creating a Windows application, see Creating a Windows Application Project.

The template automatically adds the essential project references and files to use as a starting point for your application.
