How the build the Snippet Designer project



Building the Visual Studio 2010 Version

Step One - Get the prerequisites

Step Two - Build Away

You can now build! Enjoy!























Building the Visual Studio 2008 Version

Step One - Get the prerequisites

Step Two - SnippetDesigner.settings.targets

In order to build the project you must add the file SnippetDesigner.settings.targets at the root of the source tree (next to the .sln file). You can download that file here: SnippetDesigner.settings.targets. This targets file is used by the project files to import any dependencies. Currently, this file only contain a refrence to WIX but in the future it can contain reference to a testing framework, fxcop and other files.

Step Three - Customize SnippetDesigner.Settings.targets

After you added it to your source tree, customize it to point to where those files are on your computer. This is way we can't have this file checked into the source code repositor since each person needs to customize it uniquely.

Step Four - Build Away

You can now build! Enjoy!

Are the prerequisites the same for building the 2010 solution? Will VS 2010 SDK and Wix 3.5 be sufficient?
