I've downloaded Orchard.Source.1.2.41 and I'm working in VS2010.   I'm trying to create a Child Theme using the command line interface following the instructions on


I have gone to the admin panel and enabled code generation

However, there is no bin\orchard.exe inside of Orchard.Web

The only orchard.exe file I can find is in Orchard.Specs/bin/debug...


Is it possible to have specific instructions for the process of Creating a Child Theme using Orchard.Source.1.2.41 in Visual Studio?

Yes there is. It's in src\Orchard.Web\bin. If you don't see it, it means that you had a compilation problem.

In any case, you can copy the directory of an existing theme, rename it and modify the theme.txt file.

Thanks for the help - ended up reinstalling and this time there was a bin folder - thanks again!
