We’ll get to that in a moment. When you start a programming exercise by loading a project from the student CD that came with the book, be sure to use a copy of the project, that you have copied to the hard drive, not the original project on the CD. This will enable you to build an executable file (*.exe) easily (by clicking: Build --->Build a Solution (or <ctrl><shift>B)).*** IMPORTANT ***I use Microsoft Outlook as my email client. Outlook will block attachments with a “.exe” file extension (i.e. your program executable files!). So, when you need to email an executable file to me, change the name of thefile from “whatever.exe” to “whatever.exe_ok” before attaching it to the email. You will need to make this change using the Windows Explorer, after you have closed the file in Visual Studio. Attempts to change the file name in Visual Studio will not work. You can change the name back again after attaching the file to the email.Week Ending Due Assignments1/6/2006Week 11/13/2006 Page 39, Programming Challenge 1,
