with all the compilers i've used for VB there was alway a way to do it in Save As, or a "Build" command in the file menu to do it. I'll take a look at the stuff at school to find out.

here's what I do
build & compile it and make sure it runs without errors. Then save it and go to teh bin -> debug folder of where the project is stored. There will be an executable file there for you. Hasn't failed me yet

Just copy it from the debug folder and paste it in your Documents folder (or wherever you wish). From there you can attach it to emails etc

Do what Matt said, I do that and I've brought it on to other computers before and it worked. I also believe there's a way to package it for installation as well, I know in the professional version there is but I'm not sure about the express version. Either way, I recommend making a backup copy before doing so, I did it once and it messed up my project because it kept looking for a digital signature that wasn't there.
