  • Hi Jens,

    From you image you offered. I found the behavior is correct in your Visual Studio.

    The "program.cs" file only exist in C#  Console Application. And you created a VB Console Application.

    That’s the cause that you can’t see the "program.cs" file.

    Also I did a test in my VS2013 Express. Same behavior to you:

    Personally I would guess it as the template incorrect, if you create a blank application with other types, will the same issue happen?

    We have the Visual Studio General forum that can help you with such question.

    I will move the question to that forum for a better support, thanks for your understanding.

  • Hi Jens,

    I suggest you may try to create a new bank app and check if the error still occurred at first.

    1. If the error even occurred for the new Console application.

    In this case, I think some operations corrupt your Winforms and Console templates in Visual Studio.

    For this case, reinstalling and installing looks best solution for you.

    2. If the program.cs (default) file is shown in the new created console application.

    I suppose the program.cs  file in your project may be deleted. I suggest you to check the directory of the project and check whether the . program.cs  file is existed.


    On the other hand, I suggest you’d better install VS2013 express update5 or use VS2015 community instead it. It is also a free version VS.
