Post your question to a community of 468,284 developers. It's quick & easy.

Launch devenv.exe and open a web site?

Can I launch devenv.exe and specify a web site to open via command
line? No solution or project file, just a web site.

Thanks,

Sam

See the command line switches for devenv - I guess you are planning to
use it through command line;

Thanks Marc and Aneesh for your responses.

So from Marcs posts it looks like devenv.exe can not open a website
via the command line out of the box--both the posted solutions require
either creating a solution/project file or creating a macro which
would not work for a generally distributed utility which unfortunately
are not viable options in my situation. What about DDE, is there any
documentation on supported DDE messages that I can send to visual
studio? I searched but couldn't find anything.

Aneesh, thanks for the tip but as you can see from the link you posted
there is no command line switch for opening a website, hence the
question here.

Best regards,

Sam.

Okay. I didn't see the complete switches. So did you try Marc's
suggestions?. I don't know whether you can use EnvDTE namespace for
creating solutions/projects dynamically.

I read Marc's suggestions and I'm sure they'd work in some situations,
but I'm after an out-of-the-box solution that does not require
installing a macro into vs.net.

This is not for me to use on my workstation, this is for part of a
tool which will generate website code. I can generate a solution file
and open that, but I'd prefer to open just a website and not a
solution.

Thanks,

Sam
