Note  After you have downloaded and installed the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK), you will find the samples in the installed directory. For example, use of the default installation path for the Windows 7 software development kit (SDK) results in the samples being placed under C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Samples.

Building the Sample

To build the sample from the Command Prompt window:

  1. Open the Command Prompt window and navigate to the Reindex project directory.
  2. Enter msbuild Reindex.sln.

To build the sample using Microsoft Visual Studio (preferred):

  1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the ReindexMatchingUrls project directory. For example, the full default installation path is C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Samples\WinUI\WindowsSearch\ReindexMatchingUrls.
  2. Double-click the icon for the Reindex.sln file to open the project in Visual Studio.
    Note  The .sln file name extension is not shown under default folder settings. In that situation, it can be identified by its unique icon or by its type description, "Microsoft Visual Studio Solution".
  3. From the Build menu, select Build Solution.

Running the Sample

  1. Navigate to the directory that contains the new executable, using the Command Prompt window or Windows Explorer.
  2. At the command prompt, enter Reindex.exe, or from Windows Explorer, double-click the icon for Reindex.exe.
