  • G'day Niall,

    sorry for the "silly" question.

    samples were downloaded from  -

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Sample Library


    The instructions were found on http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2d9c4515.aspx

    Building and Running the Sample

    To build and run COMEvents

    1. Open the solution file COMEvents.sln.

    2. From the Build menu, click Build Solution .

    3. Right-click the EventReceiver node in Solution Explorer and select Set as Startup Project .

    4. From the Debug menu, click Start Without Debugging .

    My position is that I have read and re-read the instructions and on this sample.

    I cant get past step 2.

    Obviosly I am either missing something,  or reading something incorrectly, to which there would be a quick all-be-it "silly" answer.

    I am greatfull any and ever bit of help.
