VBP Beginner Ideas

Hi all,

Our company purchased a copy of VPB and I would like to know the best route to take when it comes to learning how to use this program. What are some of the ways you learned?

The many included samples are probably the best place to start (by default at c:\program files\VisBuildPro6\samples\), along with this extensive forum and the help file (also available online in pdf format - suitable for printing:

Any users with more newbie advice for harb37?

I'd say start out with a relatively small example project of your own and take some time just to experiment with it. It really is very easy to work with, just don't overwhelm yourself by trying to do everything at once. When I created our build project, I did it in phases. First, I focused on getting the core libraries built. Then I added the steps to build the help. Then went back and added "cleanup" steps and code signing. Then the installation and packaging steps. And finally with the deployment steps.

Approach it in the same way that you write software. Start with a foundation, and then expand it from there. Given how intuitive the design is, in truth I probably had to reference the manual all of 3 or 4 times.

Read the manual (a number of times), check out the sample .bld files, and just take your time. And use the forums to post your questions or problems, and search them as well.

Good luck.
