    So you want to be able to send someone your MSVC project via email?

    If it's an ordinary standard C+ application, you can probably just send them your source code. (Any code you wrote, usually in .cpp and .h files.) If the project has special settings, you'll probably need the .cpp, .h, .dsp and .dsw files as you mentioned.

    If in doubt, just compress the entire project folder into one archive and email that.

    If you need a compression program (because you can email files, but not folders), consider WinZIP or WinRAR. .ZIP format is best.
