The New Project Wizard guides you through the process of creating a project that you use to develop items based on your OS design, including applications, dynamic-link libraries (DLLs), static libraries, transport layers.

The wizard provides a set of templates that you select from to create specific types of projects and files. For more information about the available project templates, see Creating a Project.

After you select a template for your project, you choose whether you want to create your project in the current workspace, or in the OS tree by selecting a workspace project or a sources project.

Workspace projects are added to the current workspace and are defined in Platform Builder project (.pbpxml) files. These projects depend on the workspace that contains them, so they are built only in the context of that specific workspace.

Sources projects are not dependent on workspaces and are defined by sources and dirs files. This means that a sources project is built every time the part of the OS tree they are in undergoes a build.

You can also use the New Project Wizard to create specific types of files.
