*Rebuild* will build all your classes and files regardless if they are changed or not. it take more time to rebuild than to be build. *Build* will only build the changed files.
both take the same actions... ie the end product of both is same

lol
thank you to both of you.
I'll split the point between you two.
Do you know why when I open VS in debug mode for a Solution, all the assemblies are copied into the debug directory. This occur during the "open solution" process, not when I build or start.  Also, what I found strange is that we have an option on the ref properties for "Copy local".  So even if I select this, I got the dll in my folder and he is locked.

Do you know somehting about this?

i don't know it - I can only guess ..

maybe it is built automatically when you open VS .. but that's only a guess... to be honest .. I just remarked that for the first time :)
