With the addition of the Customer Relationship Management and ACME Search System projects to the TrainingCertificationSln, the next step is to add the applications associated with each project. After reading the project documentation, the CRMPrj stores the Windows-based CRM application, and the ACMESearchPrj stores the ACME Search System web application. The project documentation also states that the ACME Search System application only starts when the location inquiry is requested.
