I have some code that I use as a starting point to build other applications.  The way I do it now, is I have this code saved in a text file on my computer, and then when I need to start a new project, and I copy and paste this code into a blank project thus giving me my starting point.

What I want to know is if it's possible to add a new project type to MSVC++ 6.0 that has my code in it.  That way when I want to start a new project, I done have to copy/paste the code from a text file to begin.

Hi lwinkenb,

You can do it in 2 ways.........
I believe that you'll find the first one easier.


the first one

1) Save your code you're talking about in a file.
2) Create a new project.
3) Select Project -> Add to Project -> Files.
4) Select the file you saved in point 1.
5) The file will be added to your project.

Otherwise

1) Create a new project.
2) Select Project -> Add to Project -> New.
3) There you choose what type of file to use.

Hope this helps

Cheers!

the easy way is to choose new project and then Custom APPWizers
And give it name then choose An existing project and finaly select the project
run this project it will give you message asking you to run with cancel this message and then if you make new project you will find your type listed there
enjoy and waiting your comment
