Starting the Software
Microsoft Developer Studio is used as a common programming environment for Visual C++ and a number of other Microsoft development tools. If you have an icon for it (perhaps labeled Visual C++) on the Microsoft Office toolbar at the top of the desktop, just click on it to start it up. You can also begin Visual C++ by selecting Start, Programs, Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0, Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0.

Creating a New Workspace
The first time that you start you should probably create a new workspace. Then each time you write a program you will add its project to this one workspace. This allows Developer Studio to show you a list of all of your projects and to easily select among them.

If you plan to create a large number of projects for different courses, for example, you could create a separate workspace for each course.
Select File, New. Click on the Workspaces tab. (Be sure to always check that you have selected the correct tab. Otherwise you may create some other type of new item.) Fill in a name for the new workspace. For the location use whatever is reasonable in your setting.

At Saint Vincent College we recommend the use of your private M drive. Do not use a diskette, as you will quickly run out of room.
A good beginning makes a good ending
