Viorel.

If the downloaded sample is archived (e.g. has the .ZIP extension), then un-archive it in an empty new folder.

Then you should see a file having .SLN extension. Double click on it. If the Visual Studio is installed on your machine, then the sample will be opened in Visual Studio. Then select from menu Debug --> Start Debugging or press <F5> and see the effect.

I hope this helps.

Simple Samples

We either need to have more information or we need to type a lot (provide a long answer) in order to provide for most possibilities. Instead of us spending a lot of time, it would help if you were provide more information. What files were downloaded

If you downloaded a zip file, then expand as described above. What files get expanded from the zip file
