How do I

Build a CCI sample application

First install TortoiseSVN on your PC. Then go to the Source Code tab (in the site). Then click on the "connection instructions" hyperlink under the "Source Control" section and use that SVN path for the SVN checkout option. Once you've checked out the code for the ccisamples project, open a sample solution in the root directory of the source tree (for example, SmallBasic.sln). Now just get Visual Studio to build the solution (I like to hit the build solution button). It is that easy.

If you want to use the CCI components in a solution that lives in another CodePlex project, or another Subversion repository, simply use the svn:external property to set up a link between the two repositories, and then add the relevant CCI projects to your solution. This technique has been used to make this CodePlex project (ccisamples) import the separate cciast, ccimetadata and xunit CodePlex projects.

Execute the test suite

CCI uses the test framework to execute the test suite. With just Visual Studio installed, the test projects are set up to use the basic runner but there are alternative runners that provide a smoother Visual Studio integration. These include:
