    how to do this on MS Virtual Studio?

    Hi,

    I am new to Microsoft Virtual Studio 2008. I have a solution called "test" with source files: file1.c and file2.c. There are functions inside file2.c that I call out from file1.c

    When I click on "Build", and then, rebuild "test", the file "test.exe" gets created inside the "Debug" directory. I notice that the file "file1.obj" and "file2.obj" got created inside the "Debug" directory also.

    I would like to build my compiled file "test.exe" with only file1.c and file2.obj. How can I do this on Virtual Studio 2008?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, I meant Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.

    Does this really matter? If you are going to distribute your program, just package "test.exe" for the distribution.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
