I was used from C++ Builder 6 that the exe file finally is in my Project Folder. Now with XE5 I was surprised that I cannot find the exe file although the program runs nicely. Sure there must be some wrong entry in the Options. Any hint?

Peter,

I was used from C++ Builder 6 that the exe file finally is in my Project
Folder. Now with XE5 I was surprised that I cannot find the exe file
although the program runs nicely. Sure there must be some wrong
entry in the Options. Any hint?

Since the IDE now supports compiling for multiple platforms, by default the
exe file is placed in a \$(PLATFORM)\$(CONFIG) subfolder (you can, of course,
customize this in the Project Options). So, for example, when you compile
a Debug build for Windows 32-bit, the exe file will be in the \Win32\Debug
subfolder.

In addition to what Remy said... want an easy way to find your output? As long as you have saved your project before build, go to the Project Manager pane (upper right of IDE by default), right-click your exe and select "Show in Explorer" and a new explorer window will open and put you there.
