    Dude, you probably did something dumb like save your file rather than compile it.

    Damn, mess around with the program a bit more before posting "Help!!!!!!!!!" threads. Its not a complex task to compile. Click File, Make, Ok. If you can't follow that theres no hope for you. Leave home and become a weasel polisher or something.

    Damn, you got ripped by the last guy. But really, compiling isn't that hard. However, the same thing has happened to me before but I just compiled the program again and it worked.
    Why am I still here?

    Lightbulb hmmmm.....This brings up 1 thought.

    This guy, claims to have written a "small game" in VB. Ok thats fair, but if you have the knowlege to write the code and draw the forms then how on gods green earth do you not know how to compile it? All you do is click "make exe".

    It all depends

    It all depends on what make of 6.0 you have, if you bought it off the shelf or got it in a school book, because the version of 6.0 I have, does not allow making a project into a .exe.

    Yeah, they make you pay more for certain versions that let you actually compile it. I hope that's not the case, because AFAIK there isn't much you can do for free about it. Don't forget to view the 'advanced' properties or option of the save dialog, if any.

    Try adding the .exe extension manually, e.g. make -> game.exe then enter 'game.exe' (without the quotes) into the text box.

    But it has only one sentence "make game.exe..." and "make project group..." and the second one isn't available.
