    It means you've already built the project and it doesn't need to be compiled/linked again (hence, "up-to-date")

    Find the execute thing (I think it's got an image of a !), in the debug menu, I think control f5 does it ... for me, but I'm not the same version.

    Well, do you have any source code? You need source code to make a program.
    Once you have source code, you compile it, like you just did, or just hit "build and run" from the tools (or is it build?) menu.

    Try Debug->Start or Debug->Start Without Debugging

    "Doesn't work" tells me nothing. What happens when you try to run it?

    It shouldn't. Go into your project's directory. There should be a build folder. Go in there, and see if there's a *.exe file somewhere.

    Well, there should be a folder named "debug" (or possibly "release") that contains the exe. Have you tried starting from scratch, with a Win32 console program that you know should compile and run? (or is that what you did in the first place?)

    Edit: You should also try Build->Rebuild Solution if you haven't already
