Compiling and Running Spacewar
At this point we have our software installed and have even created a starter template that was created by Microsoft that we can take for a spin. We need to make sure we can compile the code. To just compile without running we can press Ctrl+Shift+B or press F6 or click Build Solution on the Build menu. It should have compiled without any issues. You can now press Ctrl+F5 to actually run the game. Have some fun playing the game. Feel free to look around the code and tweak it. Fortunately, you can always re-create the template if something gets really messed up!
