Trouble Compiling a Console Application at the Command Prompt

P: 1
I'm new to and I have a very simple console application. When I attempt to compile it at the command prompt I get error BC30420 Sub Main not found. I know the namespace and module name but that does not seem to work. Here is my code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Imports System
  3. Module Hello
  5.     Sub Main()
  7.         Dim Today As Date
  9.         System.Console.WriteLine("Name")
  10.         System.Console.WriteLine("Class")
  11.         System.Console.WriteLine("Instructor")
  12.         System.Console.WriteLine("Today's Date:  " & Today)
  14.     End Sub
  16. End Module

At the command prompt I enter:

vbc /main:ConsoleApplication1.Hello /out:Hello.exe Hello.vb

The root namespace on the application properties window is the name of the folder where the solution is located and Sub Main is selected as the startup object.

What's wrong with this picture?????

Any help is appreciated greatly

VB.Net is totally beyond my experience. But I wonder whether perhaps you need to specify Main as Public.
