Noob, VB2005, .exe saving

P: 1
Hello,

I'm a bit new with VB2005 (learned it in college recently) [Don't ask why we learned using a later version >_<] Anywho. I've saved it as an .exe file, but now I want to go back and make prerequisites so that this file can, in theory, be standalone. While I did this, I changed some things with my file so that it looked a bit more professional. I go to build the file.... and nothing changes with the new exe file. Am I opening up my project file in the wrong place? (SOOOO MANY FILES WHICH ONE?!) I've saved the changes as well. I'm trying to get this file to be standalone for the engineering department that I'm working for... I'm the only one with VB 2005. I don't understand why it's not executing these new changes. Any suggestions?

I believe that every time you build a project (F5), its EXE gets saved to the bin/Debug folder of your project. That is the current copy. You never need to "make" the exe as you had to in vb6.
