You can create a website for your project, and in case it's an open-source project you can publish its code for example on a GitHub repository and then insert a link on your page to that repository. If it's closed-source project then you don't have to do a repository. If it's closed-source, then you have to publish executable file, through your page's FTP or on some file hosting. Of course you can also publish executables if it's open-source. If you want to get some feedback, you can also do a post about this project in the "Share your project" section on this forum.

Yup.. github for the code out there. .binaries can go to a website.. zip/tar them for distribution. Then there's click once.. WiX, NSIS, InstallAware, and squirrel. You could utilize the ol' sneakernet and just distribute on flash drives.

From the sound of it, this is a desktop application, not a web application?


Build the exe.

Thanks, I thought I might be using the wrong term by using publishing. Yes It is a desktop application. Now how do build the exe. what tools do I need and where do find these tools? It will be distributed on a disc.
thanks for Your time

Go to your project's folder.. There should be a 'bin'. It's in there. VS builds each time you run it.
