What is the relationship of all items in a project group.  For instance; are the projects interrelated; when an exe is created is it for all projects in the group, or is the project group just a nice way to have multiple projects open at once?  Can the items in a project group reference one another?  If the whole group is created into one exe, does the whole thing open at once when installed on a pc, or are some items unopened untill called?   I have not been able to find decent documentation on the subject, and want to know what its about (Program Groups.)  Please post info.  Thank you very much.

It's just like you said.  Visual Basic Groups are a nice way to have multiple projects open at once.  This is usefull if you are, for example, creating an ActiveX control.  You can have 1 project an ActiveX control, and test the control on your second project which could be a Standard .EXE.  When you compile to make a program of all your coding, it will compile the one that is active at the moment.  You can add or remove projects from your group by going to File | Add Project... or File | Remove Project.  You can also remove a project by right-clicking on it in the Project Group window and selecting Remove Project.

If you'll notice, if you create two projects in a group, they both start out with Form1 as the default starting form.  If you had a program that both had Form1 in them, you'd be in trouble when trying to call one of them as they both have the same name.  Get it ?   =)
