    You mean a project in MSVC?

    If so, it's just your program basicly. It will hold all the files that make up your application.

    Like when you do a File-> New and the list of projects comes up. You chose the type of project you want. Normally this would be appwizard. You can make other choices like console application, or dll. It just depends on what you are making and what you want MS to build for you.
    Best Regards,

    I got this off the MSDN Library, a great place to reference for help.

    What is a Visual C++ Project?

    Your Visual C++ program is organized into a Visual C++-based project that contains all the files you use when developing, compiling, building, and debugging your application. You view your project in a workspace window which has four different tabs for displaying information: ClassView, which shows the classes in your project, FileView, which shows the files in your project, and ResourceView, which shows the resources in your project.

    Visual C++ projects are part of a project workspace that allows you to create multiple projects in more than one language in a shared development environment. Files created in one Visual C++ project can be shared with other Visual C++ projects and, where appropriate, with projects created for other programs.

    When your Visual C++ programs use the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) or the Active Template Library (ATL), wizards create starter files for you. When you create non-MFC programs or libraries, a project file is created and then you add your source files to it.

    I hope this helps, pls let me know. okay!

    a bunch of source files combined together to make a single program, usually
