Port Applications to and from the Development Environment
If your C/C++ program is Visual C++ or ANSI standard C/C++, there is no problem porting it to the development environment. If you have a makefile created outside the development environment, your makefile will be wrapped and a project will be created with one file in it, your makefile. The project should still build and run from within the development environment.
If you do not have a makefile, open a new project, select the compile and link settings you need, add your source C/C++ files to the project, and build the project. See Visual C++ Projects for more information.
