Help creating main source template!

Recommended Posts

Ok I am sure we have all been here, we have a basis for starting out our applications, but for me I get tired of typing the same open window code each time and adding certain dependencies each time I want to create a window for my application to start off of, I want to know how I can create a template that I can setup. Example I am creating my project I goto file->project->visual c++-> myTemplate Application (now I name it and click ok. Anyone know how to do this in VS2008?

I went through the whole thing twice, created new projects but Export Template isn't highlighted it is grayed out meaning I am not able to click it. Anyone know what is the problem here?

With VS2008 (and prior editions), the Export Template operation is only available for .NET projects. For C++, you have to create a Custom Wizard (Visual C++ --> General when creating a new project). This will change with VS2010 AFAIK.
