Blender executable not building?

Hi everyone,

I just built blender on windows, ran the install target and looked in the /bin folder. All of the files were there except for one: the main blender executable :frowning:

There seems to be a file in place of it called ‘blender.idb’…

Any help is appreciated, TIA

Those are the build files - you still need to compile them. See:

I watched the video but when I tried to compile it from the cl it just deleted a bunch of temporary files and said ‘Build Failed’. Am I missing something?
