Vs2005 shareware starter kit questions.

P: n/a
Bob
I'm looking at the docs in VS2005 regarding starter kits and I noticed that
the starter kits to download from the site are in vsi files (compressed),
all except the shareware starter kit. MS docs says that templates should be
in compressed files. The Shareware starter kit is in msi file so when you
install it you get a solution that includes some other projects, but it does
not appear in the templates when you want to start a new project. You gotta
find your solution file and start with that. I was wondering why they made
this one different. It looks useable enough but onstead of creating a new
project from a template, you end up modifying that installed project.
Any thoughts and comments would be appreciated. Just trying to get a bit of
illumination here. Still trying to get my head around Vs2005 RC1.
Thanks,

Bob

It's a sample app... not a template...

"The Shareware Starter Kit is a sample application of the common features in
all shareware applications. You can easily modify, extend and integrate
these into your own applications"
