How to Create a Solution
How to Create a Project

You have just created a new blank solution named MyFirstSolution. A task still left for you to do is to actually create the project. So, click on the Solution Explorer tab. If you can't find the Solution Explorer tab, then Go to the menu and choose View / Solution Explorer. It should show up as a tab on the right side of your Visual Studio IDE.

Image shows the Solution Explorer tab.

7. Right Click on the new solution you just created, found in the Solution Explorer tab.
8. Choose menu item Add / New Project
9. Choose Project type of Visual C# Projects
10. Choose Template type of Asp.Net Web Application
11. Type in a location of localhost/MyFirstSolution/YCLSProj1

Creating a new project in Visual Studio

12. Choose OKAY, This will create a new Web Project on your local harddrive in ("C:\inetpub\wwwroot\MyFirstSolution\YCLSproj1")
13. You end up with the following files in your project.
  • References Folder -- DLLs needed to run your project.
  • AssemblyInfo.cs
  • Global.asax
  • Web.config
  • WebForm1.aspx
  • YCLSProj1.disco
14. Now you can click on the start button (blue arrow next to the Solutions Configurations dropdown.)
15. Since you don't have anything on the web form what will show up is a blank screen, but that is okay, it means your project was created successfully.

You have just created your first Visual Studio project. See how easy it is? This allows you to
do rapid application development and to do quick prototypes for those hot projects.
