Maybe you should also try to execute the exe in the "bin" directory instead of the "obj" one?

1 solution

Looking at the response you got at SO, and your comment it look like neither of your projects is intended to be executable - so why are you producing an EXE file that cannot be executed? If you are producing Class libraries (as it suggests) then you should be producing .DLL files instead.

After that, I assume that you are trying to build your projects by pressing F5 - which tries to execute the Startup Project - which in you case is neither of these two projects.
1) Add a static Main method which reports a problem and exits:
static void Main() { Console.WriteLine("This program is not executable"); }

2) Add an executable program project to your solution and set it as the Startup project.

Myself, I'd go with the second option and use it as a "testbed" to test the other two projects...
