Complete newbie - install dotras in tollbox?

Jun 25, 2009 at 3:07 PM

So sorry to pester you with this, but I am a complete newbie here. I am wanting to build a simple app for windows desktop (xp and vista) to provide vpn/rasdial connection using VS Express 2008 edition.

I can't figure out how to install the downloaded content for DotRas into the toolbox.

I have tried utilizing stuido help on .vscontent creation and .vsi files. Always hitting a wall.

Any help would be so appreicated.

Once you have the project downloaded and extracted go to your IDE and (with a project open) right click on the toolbox and select "Choose Items..."

A dialog window will show and you can click the Browse button.

Find the DotRas.dll wherever you stuck it at on your computer and select it and click the ppen button.

Pretty sure by default all the available components are preselected for you, click Ok and they should be listed.

Thanks Jeff. Worked like a champ.

Now on to figuring out how to use it.

Thanks again.
