Several sample projects are included to demonstrate some of the ways that Visual Build can be used. Use the samples as a pattern for creating your own automated builds. See the Visual Build FAQ for additional samples and answers to common questions.
The samples are installed in the Samples subdirectory within the Visual Build installation path (accessible from the Windows Start Menu under Visual Build Professional 8 -> Samples). The details for each step can be viewed by displaying the step properties dialog for the step. For fields containing macros, hold the mouse over that field to view the expanded value. Viewing the project macros can also be instructive. When building a project, the build output is displayed in the lower Output pane.
Note: Some of the samples require administrator rights (Visual Build must be explicitly run as administrator on Windows Vista/2008/7) in order to build successfully.
