how can i deploy my application into the GPU new bie question

Hi Guys,
I have just strated with CUDA and C in general so forgive my ignorance. I have decided to run the sample projects from visual studio IDE as the command lines seem so complex[any comment?]. A general question, how can i deploy my project physically into the GPU? is it by setting active solution configuration into Release and not debug, emudbg and emyrelease?
is there any documentation on the good practises to test then deploy the projects into the GPU

Thanking you in anticipation

everything emu runs on the CPU in emulation mode, debug runs on GPU with some extra checks (some macros do error checking). release runs without the error checks on GPU.
