I would like to name it "ProMatch"

Also, how do I create an executable so that I can run this on machines without Visual Studio on board?

For the second part of your question, this depends a lot on the project, but for simple projects, the following is sufficient.

Unless you changed the defaults, your will find the result of the compilations of your project in the \bin subdirectory.

Close Visual Studio.

Go into the <Project's directory>\bin directory. Usually you have a Release an a Debug directory. Usually you use the Release version for your users. But by default they both do the same thing. So if you have not "played" with that feature during development, check the dates to see which directory contains your last compilation.

If there are files with .vshost in there, delete them.

Copy the whole directory to any machine that has the framework installed. They do not need Visual Studio, but they need to have the version of framework that you used during development for a .NET application to work.

go into the project properties and change the assembly name
rebuild after you save the properties
