Quick Getting Started Guide

ProjectCodeMeter can measure and estimate the Development Time, Cost and Complexity of software projects.
The basic workflow of using ProjectCodeMeter is selecting the Project Folder (1 on the top left), Selecting the appropriate Settings (2 on the top right) then clicking the Analyze button (3 on the top middle). The results are shown at the bottom, both as Charts (on the bottom left) and as a Summary (on the bottom right).

For extended result details you can see the File List area (on the middle section) to get per file measurements, as well as look at the Report files located at the project folder under the newly generated sub-folder
".PCMReports" which can be easily accessed by clicking the "Reports" button (on the top right).

Clicking the i icon on the bottom right corner of each area of ProjectCodeMeter shows help specific for that area.
You can type/paste folder paths into the box instead of selecting them.

For detailed step by step instructions see Steps for Sizing an Existing Project.
