when you compile your project

if project compiled in debug mode.

then your compiled application in " project dIrectory \ bin \ debug \ " by default

if project compiled in release mode.

then your compiled application in " project dIrectory \ bin \ release \ " by default

you can set compile directory from build output path from project properties.

Hello, When you build any project it creates the following directory for .exe files and other .dll files for this project.

Ex. Your project name is Project1, it stores like this.

"Project1\Project1\bin\debug\" it is by default if you set the "Solution Configuration = Debug"


"Project1\Project1\bin\release\" if you set the "Solution Configuration = Release"

You use both the .exe files at the time of creating setup of this project.
