    Compile???

    Well I downloaded and installed the Visual C++ Express Edition 2005 Beta 2 but I have no idea how to run my program. I just want to test it out with a simple "Hello World" program, but I am totally lost and I see nothing about compiling or even running. Does anyone know how I could do this? Thanks.

    If Visual c++ Express edition 2005 is anything like Visual c++ 6 then you will find the compile and execute commands in the build menu.

    There should be a "Compile" button. Older version but.......

    There isn't even a Build Menu in this thing.

    This is so bizarre. Thanks though.

    First open a C++ solution.
    then rigth click the toolbar -> 'Build' to add the build menu.
    to run the app
    rigth click the toolbar -> customize -> commands -> debug -> start without debuginng

    Thank you very much! Both you and a friend of mine helped me figure this thing out. Thanks again.
