I'm trying too build a realy simple application, just to test the program, like a "Hello world!" app.

The problem is when I press build I keep on gettin' the same output from biuld, even if I've made changes :

========== Build: 0 succeeded, 0 failed, 1 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

The problem is that an .exe file is never created, so can't run, nor debug the app.

I made an empty project, added an .cpp file wrote the "Hello world" code and tried to build, no errors, and no .exe file.

What am I doing wrong, or why am I not able to get a .exe file

What happens if you do "Rebuild" instead of just "Build" The message above indicates that the project system beieves that the project is up to date and therefore there is nothing to do. Also how do you know an *.exe is not being generated

The same thing accurs, the same message is shown...

I don't know if an .exe file is generated, but I can't find it afterwards. And the program is unable to debbug my app. because it can't find the .exe file.

Did you add the *.cpp file to your project - does it show up in the project file list

I don't know how to change to view the "project file list" it isn't available in the tabs with the "class view" and "property manager", but the *.cpp filecontent is shown when I load the project.

You need to view the Solution Explorer, which will show the files that belong to the project. What does it show

I opened up the solution explorer and didn't find any files bound to it.

If we understand each other, then your program is not yet in your project, as Jonathan suspected. So use the Project menu to add an existing file to the project and the file to be added is your progam.
