    If you mean you need help getting to the exe then open your my documents folder, then navigate visual studio 2008\projects\project name\project name\bin\debug\project name.exe

    If you want to upload the whole project then just take the whole folder inside the projects folder, put it in a rar or a zip, and upload it using one of the sites krank posted.

    Edit: Just saw your last post, When you go to download it, hit save, not open.

    I wouldn't compress it because his friends may not have winrar or winzip.

    But make sure you select the right file you want uploaded.

    Never used visual basic, but if you can file>save as> and save it to your desktop it would make it easier to get to.

    If you just want it so other people can use it, and you don't want to give away your code, just the program itself, just take the .exe out of that folder I said in my last post, and then upload it, you don't really need to put it into a rar.

    Keep in mind, your friends that you give this to will need the .NET Framework in order to run your program.

    Ok first of all, what is that file you're uploading? It doesn't exactly look like a .exe, so yeah...

    Second of all, did you add any components to this, such as like a shockwave player, if so you need to upload the .exe and the dll's in that folder i mentioned before.

    You're missing my point.... you uploaded the wrong file, that's why you can't open it. The .exe is the file you're gonna want people to open.

    That's not the .exe, that's an appref-ms file, people aren't going to be able to run that.

    It's really not that complicated. I'll give you the steps here.
    1. Click the start button, open My Documents
    2. Open the Visual Studio 2008 folder
    3. Open the Projects Folder
    4. Open the folder of the program you want to get to
    5. Same as step 4
    6. Open the bin folder
    7. Open the debug folder
    8. The file with the extension .exe is the file you're looking for

    If you're experiencing an error and did exactly what he said, either FileFront is malfunctioning or your browser doesn't know how to send information correctly... I'm pretty sure you should double check for mistakes in what you did.
