Makefile Project Wizard


The latest version of this topic can be found at Makefile Project Wizard.

Use this wizard to create a command line for the build engine to execute. Once you create the project, you can view and edit the project's properties in the project's property page.

This wizard page describes the current project settings for the project you are creating. By default, the project is set up to build both debug and release configurations of ProjName.exe.

To change these defaults, click the Application Settings tab in the left column of the wizard and make the desired changes.
