  • I'm a bit confused. You ask about a "Visual Basic EXE", then say "I downloaded community".

    If you downloaded Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition and are looking for the file that launches VS, you are looking for devenv.exe.

    In a typical installation, devenv.exe is found at:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE

    Regarding "is it possible to put visual basic in a 32g USB?", the answer is PARTIALLY. Visual Studio installs a substantial part of itself to your system partition, regardless of the install location you specify. So you can install part of VS to USB, but that will not make your installation portable. It will only work on the original system where the other part was installed.
