    EXE files are generated only if you compile (or run) the project. If the tutorial suggests that you will get an EXE by saving all, I would strongly suggest finding a new tutorial.

    lol..

    umm the thing is, the tutorial did say to compile it.

    basically this is what i did
    1) create a new application project
    2) add a very simple code (1 line)
    3) press f9 to compile and run it
    4) use save all

    however, i still do not see a .exe file?

    ok stupid me...

    when i complied and runed it, a .exe was created, but it was created in the default folder.
    when i saved, i saved it to a custom folder...thus there is no .exe in the custom folder....
