3. The Visual Studio UI > 2 Build the Application

2 Build the Application

There are a lot of files involved in creating a Visual Studio application. In addition to the source files that you create, the resource files like icons that you create or reference, and the final executable created by the compiler, there are intermediate files that Visual Studio creates for you. When you set properties or resources, you need to tell Visual Studio to recreate some of these “behind-the-scenes” files so that they’re available to other components like the designers. You do that by BUILDING the application.
