How to Create a New Pipeline

You can add a pipeline template to your project to create a new pipeline.


You should not add a project that contains an implementation of a custom pipeline component to a solution that contains a project that uses that pipeline component. If you do, the next time you rebuild the solution you will get an error saying the output dll is being used by another process.

To create a new pipeline

  1. In Solution Explorer, select the project in which you want to create the pipeline.

  2. On the Project menu, click Add New Item.

  3. In the Add New Item dialog box, select a Receive Pipeline or Send Pipeline template by clicking it once.


    If you double-click the template, the pipeline will automatically be created with the default name that appears in the Name field.

  4. In the Name field, type a name for the pipeline.

  5. Click Open.

    The new pipeline appears in Solution Explorer. The design surface displays pipeline stages and a default set of components.

    For information about adding pipeline components to the pipeline, see How to Add a Component to a Pipeline.
