Importing files from a Microsoft Visual Studio project

HCL OneTest Embedded Studio offers the ability to create a project by importing source files from an existing Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 or .NET project.

Note  The Import feature merely imports a list o

f files as referenced in the Visual Studio project. It does not import everything you need to immediately build a project in OneTest Embedded.

The makefile import feature creates a new project, reads the .dsp or .vcproj project file and adds the source files found in the Visual Studio project to the OneTest Embedded project. The project is created with the default Configuration Settings of the current Target Deployment Port (TDP).

Any other information contained in the Visual Studio project, such as compilation options, must be entered manually in the Configuration Settings dialog box.

Alternatively, you can import the files as a sub-project of the OneTest Embedded current project. In this case, the sub-project inherits the Configuration Settings of the master project.

To import files from a Microsoft Visual Studio project as a new project:

  1. Close any open projects.

  2. From the File menu, select Import > Import from Visual Studio 6.0 Project or Import from Visual Studio .NET Project.

  3. Use the file selector to locate a valid .dsp or .vcproj project file and click Open.

  4. Enter a name for the new project and click OK.

  5. Select the correct Configuration in the Configuration toolbar.

  6. In the Project Explorer, click Settings .

  7. Enter any specific compilation options in the Build settings and click OK.

To import files from a Microsoft Visual Studio project as a sub-project:

  1. With a project open, select the project node.

  2. Right-click the project node and select Add Child > Import.

  3. Use the file selector to locate a valid .dsp or .vcproj project file and click Open.

  4. In the Project Explorer, click Settings .

  5. Enter any specific compilation options in the Build settings and click OK.
