I only hope it's the right N.G. for this question.
So, I strictly followed the instructions provided at:

nothing, and therefore creates it as an empty file)
Also, the Compile / Build / Go / Stop Executing items in Tools menu are
Something very basic must have gone wrong but I can't tell what.
Any help greatly appreciated!
