    'Solution' and 'Project' usage in VC++

    I am writing an online RPG. There is a central server, a database server, a zone server, an AI server and clients(players). How should I organize this in VC++? Should I make a seperate solution for each of these programs, or make 1 solution with several projects? What if I want to use a piece of code (say a class) in multiple programs? Should I make that a seperate library and link to it? And should this library be a seperate solution?

    1 solution, many projects.

    Make a library (as you suggested).

    It too is just another project inside the same solution.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
