The most common types of applications you can design and build are:
- GUI Applications generally have an easy-to-use interface.
- Console Applications run from a console window.
- Service Applications are run as Windows services (for Windows applications only).
These types of applications compile as executables with start-up code.
You can create other types of projects such as packages and DLLs that result in creating packages or dynamically linkable libraries. These applications produce executable code without start-up code. Refer to Creating Packages and DLLs.
