Creating a Visual C# 2010 Project

This section provides a tutorial example on how to create a Visual C# 2010 project for a console application.

Now let's try to create a C# application with Visual C# 2010 Express edition.

1. Run Visual C# 2010 Express by clicking "Start" > "All Programs" > Microsoft Visual Studio Express" > "Microsoft Visual C# 2010 Express".

2. To create a new project, select "New project" from the "File" menu. A list of application templates comes up.

3. Double-clicks "Console Application" from the list. A default "Program" class source code is generated and displayed in the source code window as shown below:
Visual C# 2010 Program

4. Add one line to the Program.cs source code to write a hello message to the console. The entire source code should look like this:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            System.Console.WriteLine("Hello world!");
        }
    }
}

5. Select "Close Solution" in the "File" menu and click "Save" button on the warning message box. The Save Project dialog box comes up.

6. Enter "C:\herong" in the "Location" field and click "Save".

Your first Visual C# project has been created and saved.
