You need to use the Build solution from the Build menu.

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.

Simple goto build menu and select build solution.
If you have slected Debug mode in configuration combo box then exe will be in debug-- bin folder and if you hace selected Release mode then resulted exe will be in release--bin folder
