Code resue in VC++

There is a set of classes and some functions that I use for most of my projects, and I'm trying to find an easy method to add them to a new project.

Other then the Custom AppWizard, does VC have any type tools for code reuse?

Is there a way to create a project template for VC++ other then the Custom AppWizard?

I'll raise the points up to 300, if I can get some type of working method.

I think that probably your best bet is to create a static library.  Just add a new Win32 Static Library (under File/New).  Then add your files into this project.  After that, you can link the library into your projects (under the Link project tab or just adding the .lib file to your project).  You will still need to provide the header files though, however you can make one header file that include all of the others and add the directory with that header file to your list of standard include directories (under Tools/Options/Directories).  Hope this helps.

mnashadka,
Thanks for the info, but I don't like using libraries, and I'm really looking for something like a VC++ AddIn.

Instead of using an AddIn, you can use the Gallary function that VC++ has built into it.

To add an item to the Gallary, click the ClassView tab, and then RIGHT click the class you want added to your Gallary.
Then select [Add To Gallary]

The next time you need to use the class on another project, and all you have to do is go to the main menu and click on:
Project->[Add To Project]->[Components and Controls]

You can then select the item from teh Gallary to add to your current project.

I believe this adds Resources as well as the *.h and *.cpp files.
