Can any one tell me why i would need i GUID in my project.

I see it is in the properties of my project under Application/Assembly information.

Do i need to make sure this is unique for every project i create. I usually use one project as my starting point for all projects and build from this as it has common code in it.

Thanks

Yeah i would assume the GUID works the same way an ID field works for a database records.

It's a way to uniquely identify your program and its assemblies in a registry. (Rather than using the version/name/date modified etc)

If you find you are re-using the same code over and over, might I suggest you save this to a seperate file that gets included in each project rather than building from the same project each time.
Have a look into creating your own VS Templates.
