Visual Studio 2013 Reference manager in c# but not in C++? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone, I have a project in C++ on Win32 and am writing a Kinect program - but i need to include a dll file. Which means i need to go to the reference node and go to extensions and select what i want etc. The problem is that this ability to click on the reference node does not exist. 

    However if i go to just a blank c# project, the reference node is there available to be selected. Does this mean I cant write in C++ and must use c#?

  • Hi Hazel,

    Thank you for posting in MSND forum.

    As far as I know that Visual C#, we can add a reference through the Add Reference dialog box. But this dialog box is not available to C++ applications. 

    However, I know that we can add the reference for C++ project by right click your Win32 project-> select Add->Reference or open this Project property dialog box ->select the Common properties->references.

    For more information, please see:
