Default Problem with compiling - 2005

In VC 6, I could load up a .cpp file, and then F7 to compile. If it didn't have a workspace created, it would ask if one wanted to be created which, selecting yes creates a workspace and then compiles.

However, in VC 2005 express, if I load up a .cpp (add > existing item) and and try to compile, it won't. Mater of fact, it won't do anything, such as let me know what it needs in order to compile the source file. I have to actually, create a new project (i.e. win32 console app) then add "existing item".

Is this the only way to do that same procedure in 2005?
