Pixel Game

Literally the WORST game ever, but my first try at making something game-like with an actual visual interface.
Download format is .Zip, unzip it and run setup (this was generated by Visual Studio).
To uninstall, just find it in Add or Remove Programs.

Basically, you use the buttons in the top left (no key control at the moment I'm afraid) to move a white pixel around and place it, making pretty black-and-white pictures in a painfully slow and annoying fashion.

Instructions:
U, D, L and R are to move the current pixel Up, Down, Left and Right respectively.
N starts a new pixel, ALSO REQUIRED TO GENERATE THE BLANK IMAGE AT THE START. YOU HEAR ME? PRESS N FIRST WHEN IT LOADS!
S should save it but I have no idea where, it's like a single line of code that I've never even seen before I used it.
X gives you a completely new blank image. No idea if you can start by pressing X instead of N, but just press N anyway.
E erases a white pixel. Move the current pixel over an already white pixel so it turns grey, then press E and it is erased. The current pixel remains there though, but the one beneath it is now black.

Basically, move the white pixel with the direction buttons, place it with N and then move the next one. As I just said, white pixels will turn grey when you place the current pixel over them to show that there is already a white one there instead of a black one (it also means the program can easily tell it has to put a white pixel back there when you move off it, but you don't need to know that).
