Creating a Windows Application Project

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The foundation of most solutions that involve Windows Forms is the Windows Application project. Creating one is easy within the integrated development environment (IDE).

To create a Windows Application project

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then select Project.
  2. In the Project Types pane, choose your desired language.
  3. In the Templates pane, choose Windows Application for Visual Basic or Visual C# projects, or choose Windows Forms Application (.NET) for Visual C++ projects.
    Note   In the Name box, name the project something unique to indicate the application's purpose. In the Location box, enter the directory in which you want to save your project, or click the Browse button to navigate to it.

    The Windows Forms Designer opens, showing Form1 of the project you created.
