    Visual C++ 2010 Express Windows Form problem

    So i've created a window in C++, its my very first project so I went with something
    simple. Basically all it does is factor Quadratic Equations, by putting the integral values
    into variables and then putting it into the quadratic equation.

    However my code is stuck at an "older version" of my development. any changes i make
    to the code doesnt show up in the program itself. What is going one??

    Have you recompiled the program since making the changes?

    I'm not sure what that means, again I am completely new to this. What I have done is run the program by pressing the little green button on the top. I believe this means to compile it however im not sure. Basically my problem is that when I do this (press the green play button), the window that opens, is nothing like what I have been designing. It is instead a previous "version" of what im making. Meaning it is for some reason stuck, and will not change no matter what i do to the code

    Around 8.3 light-minutes from the Sun
    Go to Build in the menu, and then select rebuild solution. A pop up window should have been displayed warning you about the project being outdated, however you may have disabled that at one point.

    EDIT: Then click the green arrow, or press F5 to start debugging if you want to spawn the program from the IDE.

    Just for future reference, Windows Forms is not C++. This should go into TechBoard.
