Default Source code

Hi.

I've downloaded both the C# and VB source codes.

Once the files are extracted, we are told to "create a new folder in the root of your C drive, call it BegASPNET, and move the Source and Resource folders into this new folder so you end up with folders like C:\BegASPNET\Source and C:\BegASPNET\Resources."

Now, since we have both C# source code and the VB source code, I created two new folders: C:\BegASPNET (for C# code), and C:\BegASPNET-VB (for Visual Basic). Then, I moved the respective Source and Resource folders into these two new folders.

I did this because I want to learn both programming languages. I hope it won't create any problems.

Thank you!

~Peter

Hi there,

That would certainly work, and cause no problems, as long as you "mentally map" the C:\BegASPNET folder to your working folder. That is, when the book tells you to open something from or save to C:\BegASPNET\SomeFolder, be sure to replace C:\BegASPNET with your real folder name.

Have fun with the book!

Cheers,

Imar

Peter,

No, it shouldn't be a problem at all. I did the tech edit for this book and I ran both languages side by side in their own folders without any problems.

One thing you could do too is create a solution file that has both language versions in it so you don't have to switch back and forth. (I'm pretty sure this is allowed in VWD 2008. I'm almost positive that I did that in VWD at some point during the review.)

Hope all the code works for you as written! Otherwise, you can blame me for not catching it. :)
