Examples

This example creates a new solution folder and adds a project to it from an existing file. Before running this example, create a "Projects" folder off your main drive ("C:" in this example), and create a Visual C# class library project, named "ClassLibrary1" in that folder. You need to also open a project in the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) before running this example.
