[dba-VB] Add executable solution to project

I am working on a set of classes in a project which need 

Imports System.Data.OleDb
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Collections

I was developing them in a class library, and all is cool.  However I can't
just throw a form in there and run the thing to test it, I get a "cannot be
started directly" error.  So... I tried just copying the classes (all in one
module, THAT is cool) into a window project.  Of course(?) now the imports
don't work.  Sigh.

So I created a Window project and referenced the dll from my class library.
That is cool as well, however... I really want to interactively debug the
class library.  The error message when trying to run the class library code
(directly) says to "add an executable project to this solution which
references the library project".  I can't seem to find any way to directly
add my window project (which references the class library) to the class
library solution.  

Anybody know how to do this?  

This BTW is exactly why I have never gotten anywhere with .net so far.  I
promptly get bogged down in details with no readily available help.
