  1. Hristo Georgiev

    I have a C/C++ Visual Studio project with 60 *.cpp files and 28 *.h and *.inl files.
    When I create a new C++ project for Cppdroid, I see only one *.cpp file flor my code.
    Any help would be appreciated as to how to compile 60 *.cpp files and the *.h files they use on Cppdroid..

    1. Hello Hristo,

      I’ve been programming for 35 years and have been using Cppdroid for the past month or so on my Chromebook android device.

      First you need to move those VS Studio C++ files to the download folder.

      Then, you need to create new project in Cppdroid.

      Finally, using some file manager program app for android, such as “file manager+” move those files from the download folder to the cppdroid/projects/(your project name)/ folder.

      Then Cppdroid will can access them to compile and run.

      Hope this helps!

      Then using a file manager program, such as filemanager+,
