Advice needed on how to build a program and how to update it and debug after it is built
Posted on 2006-03-30
I have been using VB.net for 6 months now, it is my first ever programming language and first job in programming (I am also the only programmer so it has been a huge learning curve!). Anyway I have been working on the same project since I started and now I have to build and deploy it. I am afraid I have a few questions:
Q1. What is the difference between 'Build Solution' and 'Build [projectname]' menu items?
(I tried both in desperation and now I can't get into debug mode anymore, every time I made changes they don't show until I run Build again). I am getting desperate as my project is due to be installed for testing next Thursday but I haven't been able to make any code changes and I still have so much to do :-(
Q2. Am I supposed to undo the build somehow if I want to carry on making changes to my code? If so how?
Any general advice or links to articles on this subject would also be gratefully received.
