Well, if your asking what I think your asking, you need to goto "Build" and then "Build Project".

It will then be in the "Project Folder\Bin\Release" folder

If you just debug the application (IE, click play and use it that way), then the compiled EXE is in the:

"Project Folder\Bin\Debug" folder

Hope thats what your after

you really need to use better programming practice and create another project by selecting deployment project and creating an installer application.

From Visual Studio, select Build>Build Application.  The executable will be found in the Bin directory of the solution.

From outside VS, run VBC.EXE. It comes with VS.
