    Hit the F7 key, the .exe file will be in the project folder :-)

    F7 the .exe will be in either the Release or Debug folder depending on the project settings.

    Make sure you set the Release on "Rebuild All" or "Batch Build". I don't have MSVC6 available at this minute, but it is in one of those 2.

    Add std::cin.get() right before the end of main() (before the return statement), that will keep your program open.
