Arebis Solution Maker 1.1
Features & Benefits
The Solution Maker allows you to easily create solutions with existing projects including all dependent projects.
If you have solutions with a lot of interdependent projects, then this tool is for you. Il allows you to create alternative solutions containing only a few projects, automatically detecting and adding project dependencies.
Features include creating empty solutions without the need to create a new folder, and adding projects to (new or) existing solutions,detecting and including dependent projects.
How it works
Once installed, the tool adds a "New/Extend Solution with Projects" item in the Tools menu of Visual Studio.NET.
If you have no solution open, this menu option will first offer you to create a new solution without the requirement to creating a new folder for the solution.
Then, based on the path of the created solution or solution that was already open, the Solution Maker offers you a list of all C# and VB.NET projects found on the drive in the given path. Select the projects you want to open in the current solution and press OK.
If additional projects were required because choosen projects depend on them, those projects will automatically be included in the solution.
Choosing "New/Extend Solution with Projects" will create a new solution if none is yet open.
Next, choose the projects to include in the solution (supports multi-select with Shift and Ctrl).
Not only the requested projects are part of your solution, but also all required dependent projects.
