Visual Studio Versions

Hey all- so i just signed up for the beginner ‘Asp.Net MVC’ and right iff the bat, i was surprised that the course was using VS 2013 which I dont think is even supported. Im using VS 2022 and i dont have the ‘App Data’ folder in my Solutions Explorer.
is this an issue??

Many courses were made quite some time ago.
It may make some steps difficult. I’ve been through there.
But remember that as a dev you have to seek solutions.
Hence I spent some time googling for information, adapting things.
I know it can be frustrating but keep calm and see it as a challenge to overcome.

About the App_Data folder it is present on ASP .NET MVC projects.
Very likely the course is still using .NET Framework or early versions of .NET Core.

There is a context menu that helps create it if it is not there. You’ll find there are other folders that were not created. Why would you if you don’t need them ?

That said if you are not using an instance of SQL Server and for convenience it is cool to have this App_Data folder. I did create it manually so this is perfectly fine to do it this way.

Good luck.
