Compile and Execute C# (C sharp) code without Visual Studio and with .NET Framework

Hi everyone,

Today I have come across executing C# (C Sharp) code with out Visual Studio, but you must have .NET Framework installed on your computer.

Procedure:

  1. Install .NET Framework, if not installed.
  2. Set the path of the .NET Framework Edition in environment variables or by using SET PATH command.
  3. ex: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5
  4. Write the C# script, Save file with extension .cs
    ex: D:\csharp\trail.cs
    using System;

    public class Example
    {
        public static void Main()
        {
            Console.Write("\nIts Done\n");

            Console.ReadLine(); //Waits until user press Return
    (Enter) key
        }
    }
  5. Open command prompt, change the directory to specified folder(ex: D:\csharp\)
  6. Execute the following command
  7. cmd> csc trail.cs
  8. We will get trail.exe in the specified folder(ex: D:\csharp\), if it executed successfully
  9. Double click the trail.exe and see the output.
  10. We have successfully executed C#(C sharp) code without visual studio and with .NET Framework only
