Did you know… you can specify the project icon for your template to appear in the New Project Dialog? – #339

On page 2 of the File – Export Template wizard, you can specify several options. The first of these is how to set the icon.

Now when you go to New Project Dialog, you can see the icon:

I should never be hired as a graphics designer.

    I love the Export Template option for VB and C#.  Unfortunately, I still have to use unmanaged C++ for some projects, and I’d love to have a similar Export Template option.  Is any such thing available for the C++ side of the house?
