Once you have installed Visual Studio as instructed in our previous post (click here to install Visual Studio), you are now ready to execute a C# program in it.
Simple C# Program Execution
Follow the below steps for creating and executing a simple C# Program in Console Application of Visual Studio.
1) Search for ‘Visual Studio’ in your machine and click from the Search results as shown below:
2) Observe that the Visual Studio IDE will be launched and Click on the ‘Create a new Project’ option as shown below:
3) Select ‘Console C#’ Template and Click on the ‘Next’ button on the displayed ‘Create a new project’ dialog as shown below:
4) In the displayed dialog, provide the project name as ‘MyFirstProject’ and select any desired location on your machine and click on ‘Create’ button as shown below:

8) Observe that the Program got executed, but was unable to see the Output, as the Console displayed and got exited before one could see the output. To overcome this problem, lets written another line of code which waits for the User input as shown below:
Console.ReadLine(); //Waits for the User input.
9) Lets execute the updated code again by clicking ‘Start’ button on the Visual Studio IDE or by pressing ‘F5’ key on your keyboard and observe that the we can see the Output as shown below:
