VB.Net Express 2010 and ISO image problem

Apr 27, 2011 at 7:31 AM

Hi All

 

When compiling the program, no ISO is being created for some reason in any of the output directories, and i'm very new to COSMOS, I have installed the following

 

VB.Net Express 2010

Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Isolated Shell)

VMWare Player

 

I'm sure i'm missing and small setting somewhere for the VB.Net Express to compile and create the ISO and then run it in VMWare Player, can anyone help?

The VS Shell project should create a .iso file when building..

Hi Mterwood

 

Thats what I thought but i can find no ISO image anywhere, I know when using C# it does it all for you with no problems, but for some reason this is not the case for the VB.Net edition, is there a setting i'm missing somewhere.

 

Also on another note, do you have any help files on the classes etc that are available and hwo to use some of the them?

Do you get any build output in the Shell?


Regarding docs: not really: you shuold just use System.Console etc, ie, normal .net classes..

I get the normal ouput if thats what you mean , i think i'm missing something here, in the output directories i get the standard .dll's, pdb's etc that are normally associated with a program, what i've done so far is

 

Installed VB.Net Express, Visual Studio 2010 Shell (Isolated Shell) and WMWare Player, i've noticed when looking at the properties of the C# example it give you properties to set for which virtual software to use, what image type to use etc, but nothing of that sort is coming up for VB.net.

 

I created a standard library for the kernal, then created a 2nd project of a console type and referenced the kernal class, is this correct or have i missed something.

You should have a cosmos kernel project in VB Express, then a Cosmos project (.Cosmos file) in shell. that shell project references the kernel project.

Hi

 

Sorry, think i'm being really thick here, would you be able to give a 'dummies' guide on what to do, this all very new to me for creating OS's,

 

These are the available in VB.Net project

in Express, you create your project. Build it and it'll produce a .dll file.
in Shell, create a Cosmos project, and have it reference the .dll
in Shell, Build and it'll make an iso

In Express, you create a cosmos project. Check on disk, it should create a .vbproj.
In Express, build ths project
In Shell, create a cosmos project, check on disk: it should create a .cosmos project
In Shell, add a reference to the .vbproj's .dll file
In Shell, Build.

Right, I think i know what the problem is.

 

I can do the first part no problem with express, but when looking in express i'm supposed to have a template for the Shell in the installed templates under 'Other Projects', this is not there, i've just re-installed the shell and it's still no appearing.

 

So a little stumped now, google here i come.
