Launch Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition.

Click File->New website

Choose ASP.NET Web Site from the templates at the top

At the bottom of the dialog, make sure that File System is the location and Visual C# is the language.

Click on the drop down box to the left of the Browse button at the bottom of the dialog.

Put your cursor at the end of the text and change the name of the application to Lab1.  It will look something like this depending on your file system structure:  C:\Documents and Settings\ted\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\WebSites\Lab1

This is how you name your project when you first create it.  In this case our website project is called “Lab1″.  Click OK to have the IDE create the project for you.  You will get a skeleton application with one web page named “default.aspx”.

  1. I’m new subscriber and find C# University text material of great interest. Also, video content of interest however we cannot get audio??
    Pls advise how to turn audio ON.

    Thanks, Harry Nash

  2. Good question and thanks for asking so that other students can find out.

    *There is no audio, so don’t worry your browser is working fine if you don’t hear anything. The videos are meant to supplement the text lessons so they are within the context of a specific lesson or topic.
