    Multiple Solutions in Visual C++ Project

    Hello,

    New to Visual C++ enivronment. Post questions separately.

    I know you can have multiple solutions in a project.

    Question:

    If I create two simple console applications, that have separate main's. Can I place them into one project and If I can how could I compile each separately (any conflicts)

    I doubt you can, but personally I haven't tried it. Why exactly do you want / need them in the same project? I can't think of a reason, but maybe I'm missing something.

    If you can, definitely try and keep separate programs in separate projects. If your programs share resources, just place a "copy" of that resource in each project.

    >>I know you can have multiple solutions in a project.
    No, you can have multiple projects in a solution.

    >>Can I place them into one project
    No, but you can place them in the same solution. In Visual C++ 2005, you go file->new->project, then change the dropdown box from "create new solution" to "add to solution". Now you'll have two projects side by side that you can compile separately. To switch between projects, you set the project you want as the active project (not sure where the button is, but it should be there somewhere).
    Just Google It. √
