First things first, we have to create a eric4 project. In order to accomplish that, we simply hit the 'Project' menu item and then 'New...'. A 'new project' dialog pops up, and we will set some project properties. The most important are the path where the project will be located, programming language, project type and main script.
We hit the 'Ok' button and a new dialog appears asking if we want to add files to project. We click no (as there are no actual files to be included).
Another dialog pops up asking which version control system is to be used. We select 'none' and hit 'Ok'.
