System cannot find the file specified. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am very new to programming and when i try to run one of the simple "Hello World" applications I always get the error code "system cannot find the file specified" I have tried opening up CLR win32 empty project etc. All of them do the same thing with the same "Hello World" code.

    This is the one i\I have been using.

    This happens every time I press the debug button. How do i Fix This. Be simple, I dont know very much to programming

  • Before you can debug you have to "build" the program. You can use the Build menu or a toolbar button.  The build process translates your code into machine-executable instructions.

    Also, check the output window for errors from the build process. If there are any errors reported it did not build the program. You have to fix the build errors before you can debug.
