    Compiling and running a single file

    Is it possible to compile and execute a single cpp file on my hard disk from Visual Studio .NET 2005, without going through the full process of creating a new project, etc.?
    Thanks!

    Short answer, No. Best advice I can give you is this: Keep an empty project handy, and add your files to project as needed.

    Yep, it's my standard practice to have 3 or 4 test projects that I use to try different things without having to go through the hassle of creating a new project every time I want to test some code.

    Using the wizards it doesn't take THAT much time to create a new project...
