    The software generates the Visual Studio project (and solution) in the specified folder location. After the new project is generated, the software displays a message.

  9. Navigate to the solution in the specified folder location, double-click the .sln file, and then build it in Release mode.

If Microsoft Visual Studio automation does not completely generate the solution, the message box showing the location of the solution will not display. In this case, re-run GeometricConstructionsCodeGenerator.exe, and click Yes in the message box that proposes to override the existing solution.
