Sorry, but... I must be stupid... In MSVC++7.0 (.net) Where the heck is the compile/build button? I think I might have found it, but it stays greyed-out. What conditions must I fullfill to be able to press the button, if I indeed know where it is. Thanks much! Alex Ford PointSoft EA Co., Ltd. http://www.pointsoftonline.com

That''s Execute, not Compile.

PointSoft, don''t you have tooltips? Compile is traditionally a down arrow next to a stack of "documents". Leave your cursor over each of the icons for a few seconds and see what the tips say. Also, try right-clicking anywhere on the toolbars and making sure that Build is checked (ie, that you''re displaying the Build toolbar).

Thanks to Kylotan for the idea!

Oluseyi: Yeah, that is how I think I may have found the right button, but it was greyed out... After about 30min''s of tinkering, I figured out what I was doing wrong... I''m not used to the ''solution'' thing... You have to create a solution then create a project and then create the files under the project. (which I did, but instead I just created a bunch of .c and .cpp files under the solution...)

Oh well... Now if anyone asks, that''s how you do it... heh... It''ll take me some real time to get used to it, because it''s sure is hard to understand... All the pop up menu''s that are supposed to act like an easy wizard... I dunno... They kind of make it harder, lol.

Thanks

Uhmm? If you set up a project the proper way - eg from the Start Page or with File->New Project..., it should automatically set up the accompanying solution for you.
