"Release" not available in Configuration Manager in Visual Studio .NET 2005


When I click the Build menu in VS.NET 2005 and select Configuration Manager, I believe there should be an option for "Release" under Active Solution Configuration.   It's missing on this system (and on another I checked here).

Why would that be if nobody has deleted it?   Is it a default option?   How can I put it back?   All my projects are compiling in "Debug .NET" mode but I need them to be release ...

ASP.NET is not really my thing, but why do you need a 'Release' build in web environment? As far as I know, again, it's not really my thing, but web is not really like compiled or anything.

But you got the       <compilation debug="true"/> in your web.config file
Is that what you're pointing at?

There they say: when you publish your site, it will be in Release
