Im having trouble opening the downloaded code examples whilst working throughout the book. I have downloaded the code and extracted all the files to a folder on my desktop.
I am currently on page 29. Figure 1-10 on page 29 has a screenshot showing the Solution 'Calculator'(1 project) and its location: c:\...\Calculator. For me to simply open up the calculator project so that the Solutions Explorer reflects figure 1-10 and indicates that i have 1 project open called 'Calculator' should i be going to:
File>Open>Project/Solution>and then navigating to the folder on my desktop to where I have extracted all the code?
I have done this and then would navigate to Chapter 1 CODE. When double clicking Chapter 1 CODE, there are then two folders: CS & VB
. As im using C# i double click CS which then takes me to the folder 'General'. If i double click 'General' that then takes me to two empty App_Code and App_Data folders?
I have tried opening a File(rather than a Project/Solution) where i can navigate to Chapter 1 CODE>CS>GENERAL>Calculator but when i do it, it simply opens up the Calculator.aspx file but the Solution explorer does not reflect Figure 1-10 saying that i have one solution called Calculator open. It says: Solution 'General'(0 projects).
Im just wanting to work along through the book examples and dont know why the solution explorer cant say: Solution 'Calculator'(1 project) and let compile the calculator project?
Please can you help me where im going wrong. When im opening any of your examples should i be going to: Open> Project/solution
Help would be appreciated here as i dont know what im doing wrong.
