How to create a New Project in Kushal?

Assuming that you have installed all the required applications, revisit Contact Management Application. Create a new project and provide Display name - Contact Management. Please note that the display name can have spaces while the Project Name cannot. Provide Contact_Management as Project name.

1) Define the Company Name as ABC & Co, or any other of your choice.

2) Keep Version Number as 1.0.0.0

3) The project gets created in C:\Kushal\Contact_Management, that is the Project Name.
Since this is a simple application you need not select User Management feature.

4) Next, enter database details. You are developing sample application with SQLite Database, so you can select SQLite as database Type.

Kushal automatically creates a multi-file system, you need to provide an extension for the end application data file. Kushal will read Database definition from the original file and further create a copy of it when users create a new file in the end application. In this example, give ACM as the file extension.

5) Save the Project.
