Hi everyone,

 

I've been trying to find a tutorial/ebook/book/article/video on how to set up a project in VS2012. Basicly, i want to know how to use vs2012 like how i use g++ ie. how to link files, use the debugger, use a makefile, set the path to dependencies, etc.

 

Is there such a tutorial? If not i'm guessing msdn is where i should start?

 

Thank you!

Visual Studio creates an implicit Makefile.
Most important system libs are added by default.
Your Visual Studio project would be linked against additional libs too.
You should add them into project's properties.
Debuggin is easy, this is a typical RAD.

Please consider reading http://msdn.microsoft.com

One alternative would be to use something like CMake to auto-generate solution. However, you have to modify CMakeLists.txt every time you add/remove files and re-generate it.
