  • 1. Go to Solution Configurations, click "Release". Otherwise, you exe file will in debug mode.

    2. Go to Build, click "Build Solution".

    You can also press F6 to build solution.

    3. Open file explorer, go to folder project/bin/release, you can find your exe file there.

    You haven't given nearly enough information to allow a focused reply.

    What kind of project have you created? Console? WinForms? Other?

    What does your code look like?

    The general procedure, once you have created a new project and added your
    code to it, is to do a Build which invokes a compile and related processes
    needed to create an exe. (Note that when you create a new Project using one
    of the templates that project will become part of a "Solution". One Solution
    may contain more than one Project.)

    A Build can be started using the menus or a function key (F7).

  • Hello,

    No matter what type of project you want to create e.g. Window Form, Console or WPF the best idea is to use VS2019. All of the current Microsoft documentation points to VS2019 and you can use the newest .NET Framework or an older version of the .NET Framework. All in all with VS2019 it's a) easier on you to create projects b) easy for those here willing to help to assist you with issues.
