<h1>Indexing a large project<br>
</h1>
<p>Although any indexer can be used to index an existing project at any
time, the following steps present a recommended<br>
approach to importing large projects.<br>
</p>
<ul>
  <li>
    <p>Create a new Standard or Managed project.</p>
  </li>
</ul>
<ul>
  <li>Uncheck the <span style="font-weight: bold;">Use default</span>
button and browse to the root directory of your project</li>
</ul>

 alt="Import project setup"></p>
<ul>
  <li>Click on <span style="font-weight: bold;">Next <br>
    </span></li>
</ul>
<ul>
  <li>In both Managed Projects and Standard Projects, you eventually
get to a page that contains the tab <span style="font-weight: bold;">C/C++
Indexer</span></li>
</ul>
<ul>
  <li>Select <span style="font-weight: bold;">No Indexer - </span>this
will disable all indexing for now<br>
  </li>
</ul>
<span style="font-weight: bold;"><img

</span>
<br>
<ul>
  <li>Click Finish to create the project</li>
</ul>
<ul>
  <li>Set your include paths either by manually entering the include
paths or, in the case of a standard make project, <br>
performing a build</li>
</ul>
<ul>
  <li>Once the project has include path information, bring up the
project properties and select which indexer you wish to <br>
use on the project.</li>
</ul>
<br>
By following these steps, you are making sure that the time spent
indexing will produce meaningful results.<br>
