Default visual studio 2005 question

I wrote a visual basic program using visual studio 2005, I was wondering how do i send the .exe file to someone so they can check out the program. I have no idea which one the .exe file is because it simply just doesn't flat out say .exe on the file extention.

Debug executables are bloated and contain unnecessary baggage. You would be better off creating a Release build which is your raw program without any of the debug symbols, bounds and memory checking etc. and this is what professional software is when it runs.

If you choose to do that, you will find it in the /Release folder instead of /Debug.

on VB if you go to "file" there should be a "make executable" option for you to click. then you just pick the dir.
