    Does anyone know if it is possible to deploy a web application using the trial version on visual studio professional 2010 c#?

    Or simply access the exe file?

    I just need the project compiled so I can show it on another computer

    The debug and 'release' folders only exist as XML files not in the bin folder. Once I have ran the debug and release two new files are created in the bin folder but as application extensions saved as .dll

    Please help

    That's what a web site is, dlls that live in a bin folder and various config and mark-up files elsewhere.  When hostsed IIS knows what to do with them, there is no EXE, web sites are not stand-alone things.  Also you can create these files but the license forbids you from releasing production sites.

    Tried to open the file in internet explorer but the web page opens and then the document just appears as a download

    You have to host the site in IIS.  In IIS you create a site and bind the site to the root folder (the folder that contains the bin folder) and you access the pages that way.  You can't access it direct via the browser, you have to host it in iis.  Google for configuring a site in iis and you'll find some walkthroughs.
