    VB6 Won't Compile

    It's been so long since I've had to do this I may be doing something wrong.

    I made a small ( trivial ) change. Then went to Project > Project Properties > Make and clicked OK. The Project Properties box went away without complaint but it did not create an .exe file.

    I'm using Windows 10

    I am unable to understand anything from those replies. How does "Invalid link" relate to my question?

    Where are you trying to create the exe and what OS are you using?

    I think the Make tab only changes the Make options.
    When I want to create an executable, I just select the "Make xxx.exe" menu item from the File menu.

    You are correct sir. That was it. I must have done that a thousand times, but not for maybe three years. See how quickly old men forget.

    Thank you

    Just to clarify those first two replies: The first guy posted a link, realized he had posted in the wrong thread, and edited the post to remove the link. The second guy had seen the first link before it was edited, and noted that it was broken. So, they were trying to be helpful...just not necessarily to you, and got a bit confused.
