A new Blocks Project opens when you start VEXcode EXP, but you can easily create a new C++ project once VEXcode EXP is open.
Creating a New C++ Project
Launch VEXcode EXP
VEXcode EXP will open with the initial project in Blocks editor mode.
To create a C++ project, open the File menu and select ‘New Text Project.’
Select C++ from the Project Language window.
VEXcode EXP will switch to C++ editor mode and load a default blank project.
