The OBJ folder is used to store objects before the are linked together.  The BIN is the final output.  If you your own DLLs, for example, it will often copy them to the BIN folder, but not to the OBJ.

If you delete the OBJ folder, it will just regenerate it during build.  So for most purposes, it is not necessary to keep the contents.

You are triple-dog sure that I can obliterate the OBJ folder and I'll be okay?

I guess I could try this with a SAMPLE application and see what happens.

Yeah, I took my own advice and created a Windows Application in C#.

Then I closed VS .NET.....and I deleted the BIN and OBJ folders.

Then I re-opened VS .NET and BUILT the project.

Closed VS .NET...........the BIN and OBJ folders were there again!!!!!!


==================


This will also work fine if I have dependencies on OTHER DLLs   ?????
