Importing an existing Visual Studio project

 

Introduction

If you have already initiated a project in Visual Studio or if you want to use a specific project template, you can model your existing project file (.csproj) in Objecteering using the import feature.

 

 

Importing an existing project

To import an existing project, simply select the package that will represent the root of your project (1) in the explorer, and then click on the  icon in the auxiliary window (2).
