I was wondering, how do I compile a project file so that I have an executable? If I hit compile or rebuild, etc. It doesn't make a .exe file: it makes a .o file.

If you can run your program you must definatly have an exe someplace(you can't run a .o file). It might not be in your project's directory depending on your settings, check the Dev-C++ folder. If you have no run option then no exe was generated due to an error.

If you hit "compile and run" that definitely makes an executable. It may contain debugger information however.

-edit-
Whoops! Scet beat me to it!
