Default Ch12,p391: project with Output Type ... Error

After following the steps for signing the assembly on page 391, I get the following error when trying to run the application, with or without the debugger:
"A Project with an Output Type of Class Library cannot be started directly."

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I am unfamiliar with the book but some things to check:

If you have a solution that has multiple projects make sure that the Windows project is the startup project (the project with your forms). To set a project as the start up project, right click on it in the solution explorer and select "Set as startup project" from the properties menu.

If your project contains nothing but .VB files, you can not run this project, you can only grab the .dll that is in your bin directory and use it in other applications.

hth,
