/Fe (Name EXE File)
Specifies a name and a directory for the .exe file or DLL created by the compiler.
Without this option, the compiler gives the file a default name using the base name of the first source or object file specified on the command line and the extension .exe or .dll.
If you specify the/c (Compile Without Linking), to compile without linking, /Fe has no effect.
