    You have to compile the code, and create an .exe file. You must be using the full version of Visual Basic though; the trial or student editions won't compile the code.

    a .exe or executable is automatically created when you hit F5 or run the app from within the solution exporer window. You should have the .sln, .vb, .exe, and a few others I think.

    And it doesnt matter which version, full or not, you can still build (compile) ms apps written in vb.

    I think you have it confused with the visual studio suite where you have to have the full version in order to compile apps that are written in c, visual c, c++ or any other oop language besides vb.

    well i got the full version anyway, so how do i compile the code into an exe?

    If you are using Visual Basic 6.0:
    File > Make projectname.exe...

    If you are using Visual Basic .Net:
    Build > Build Solution

    You maybe correct, Iím not sure,
    Cuz I no longer have the app, Iím using VB6 now.

    It's been awhile now since I had the class, but the vb book I was using in class came with a student edition, and you could not create a executable with that edition. This caused me promptly to download VB off the net.

    And since I sold that book back, with the cd, I have no idea if it was Visual Studio or Visual basic.
