Visual Studio - beginner question...

Hi,

I'm new.

Here's an absolute beginner question (please don't laugh ;)). I'm working through a tutorial for Visual Studio. It says at one point I should follow the path

"New / Blank Solution...".

But I can't find that path [u]anywhere[/u].

Can someone help me? Thanks :)

EDIT - I've one more question:
What's the difference between Debug and Release mode and which of the modes should I use as beginner who just tries to create some easy programs?

    Mwahahaha. Oh, don't. :-)

    My guess is that you're using a different version of Visual Studio than the tutorial is. Maybe New Project or Empty Project or Blank Project is what you're looking for in your version. Solution is the since-.Net spelling of Project. :-)

    :
    When your program is compiled, the compiler can stick in some extra information so that you can debug your program. That is Debug mode, and it's what you want to be using. Relesae mode will strip all of that out and will make debugging your program much harder. However, it makes a smaller file, so if you were to one day distribute your programs in executable form for production use, you'd want to use that.

    Hi,
    I use Visual Studio .NET 2003 and I get that path.
    It's just File/New/Blank Solution.
    I think a solution is just a container for your projects.
    Once you create a solution, you can choose File/Add Project
