Visual Studio 2012 Error: Could not find ... specified for Main method

This morning I ran into a problem while trying to compile.  Visual Studio 2012 gave me this error:
"Could not find 'Test.GetWebPage' specified for Main method"
I tried removing the file with the method from the project - since I could find no other bit of code referencing "GetWebPage", but Visual Studio still would not compile, complaining that file "CSC" needed it.
The issue was I had set GetWebPage as the startup object and now the method was gone.
To fix: inside Solution Explorer, right click on the project and select "Properties...".  Then under "Applicaiton" set the "Startup object:" to "(Not set)".
