Locating Sample Files 

Sample files for each release of Visual Studio are installed in folders separate from those of other releases so that there will be no conflicts when two or more versions of Visual Studio are installed. If you uninstall Visual Studio, the corresponding sample files are removed.

The default locations for sample files in this release are listed below. %install% represents the location where Visual Studio is installed, such as \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\.
