Hi vbjohn,

Click Build->Build Solution.  The .exe will be created in the bin directory of your project folder.

Go to Build --> Build Solution.
The EXE will be in a subfolder called "bin" in your main project folder.

If you want the release version, then change the solution configuration from "Debug" to "Release".  This can be done from the dropdown combobox on the toolbar or by going to Build --> Configuration Manager.  

Rebuild your solution.  The release EXE will be in a subfolder called "obj\Release" in your main project folder.
