>How do I create an executable?

What project template did you use? Executable is created automatically when you build your project. Or do you mean installer executable?

My application is a VB.Net destop application.  I want to create a setup.exe to deploy my application.  How can I do this?  

Thanks in advance,

How to run any project with ease

Manage projects of all sizes how you want. Great for personal to-do lists, project milestones, team priorities and launch plans.
- Combine task lists, docs, spreadsheets, and chat in one
- View and edit from mobile/offline
- Cut down on emails

Okay, so this is how I created my executable, but I am not sure if this is the proper way of deploying my application.  In the VB.Net IDE, I selected Release from the Solutions Configuration drop down, then Build Solution from the Build menu.  I then just copied my executable from C:\MyApp\MyApp\bin\Release, and pated the executable on the users machine.  Is this a correct way of deploying my application?  

Thanks in advance,

Yes that's one and the easiest way of deploying your program. It is especially useful if your program does not require any specific prerequisites.
