Beginner Question: How do I get JUCE projects to "run" from Visual Studio?


I’m trying to learn the basics of JUCE/C++ from the tutorials like this one:

I’ve got it open in Visual Studio and I’m going through to learn. But how do I actually get the program to run a test version from Visual Studio?

If I try “building” or “compiling” it just says:
“1>------ Build started: Project: SineSynthTutorial_App, Configuration: Release x64 ------
========== Build: 1 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========”

But I don’t have an application to run and test.

What am I missing?



From Visual Studio’s Debug menu, choose, “Start debugging”.


If you’d like the Standalone simply right click it from the Project Explorer window and set it as startup project.

If you need to launch a host you need to set it in the properties of that target of course.
