    Re: Help compilation error

    The project was written in VS7.1 Since I don't have that old of Visual Studio installed on any of my machines, I opened the sln file in Visual Studio 2012. When it prompted me to convert the project, I chose "yes". The project converted. It's that simple.

    If you get any free time over could you try to make it a working exe and write me instructions on what you did.

    I will keep trying and do stuff according to what you have written.

    That's because the project is a class library and you can't run this project type directly (as I've already explained).

    Sorry. At this time the best thing you can do is pick up a C# book and work through the chapters. Another option is to find an online tutorial.

    We're willing to help here, but you need to at least have some basic knowledge (which you can get from a book better than we can give you here).

    It'll take you a few chapters to understand what different assembly types there are and how to create an exe project that calls a class library assembly, but the time you spend will be well worth it.
