visual Studio cannot start debugging because the debug taget\c:\documents and settings\my documents\visual studio 2005\consoleApplication8\consoleApplication8\bin\debug\consoleApplication8.exe is missing. Please rebuild the project and retry or set the ouputpath and assemly name properties appropriately to point at the correct location for the target assembly.

I get this error on every project I try to build, can someone tell me how to fix it? Thanks

1.  Make sure the path is correct.
2.  Make sure the Debugger Users group has Full Control to that folder

That's where I'd start, anyway.

May be the problem is with the location your executable is located, c:\documents and settings\my documents\visual studio 2005\consoleApplication8\consoleApplication8\bin\debug\consoleApplication8.exe

try moving your project a another folder say c:\PracticeApplication\consoleApplication8 and build and execute the code.

Thank you for your prompt answer, it is much appreciated.    I did move the application but it didn't seem to make a difference.  I  checked with an person that teaches C# and he said it was because of build errors I had. I started commenting out my code and it did get rid of the error message.
Thank you again
