I want to write Post-build event in visual studio 2012 and I don't know how to write Macros to execute post built events.
My simple requirement is, I just want to run an .exe file which is placed in a folder after successful built operation.

So please guide me how to achieve this.
Thanks in advance.

You may not even need a macro. You might be able to just do:
call C:\MyFile.bat

which is an example in the article.

I want to publish data to database which has execute an EXE file of another project which will take care of infrastructure required for application.

I have tried

Set shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
shell.Run "C:\abc.exe"
But i am getting error "Command" exited with code 9009.
and also call c:\abc.exe, but i am getting an error, Publish cannot begin untill project builds successfully.

It sounds like you also have a Publish project in your solution that it appears to be conflicting with.
