How to set DLL project as Debug or Release for Winforms?

How do I set a DLL project as Debug or release for Winforms?
Or does Visual Studio create both, one in Debug folder, and the other in Release folder?

Right Click the toolbar in your IDE, choose customise option,  select build from left pane and from right pane drag Solution Configurations to your toolbar. This will give you option of Selcting Debug and Release mode

Right click on the DLL Project in the Solution Explorer, click Properties, then click on the text that says "Configuration Properties", then at the top of the dialog a combobox called Configuration will become enabled. Click on either Debug or Release in this dialog will change the project build mode.

Also, you can click on the Build Menu and select Configuration Manager. Then under the name of your DLL Project, you can select Debug/Release under the Configuration column.

GUIDwAY IS RIGHT, I will like to add one more thing when you choose Release mode dll will be compiled into \bin\Release and similarly in debug mode u will fnd dll in \bin\Debug

difference beween both Debug and Release Configurations is

The Debug configuration of your program is compiled with full symbolic debug information and no optimization. (Optimization complicates debugging, since the relationship between source code and generated instructions is more complex.)

The Release configuration of your program is fully optimized and contains no symbolic debug information. Debug information may be generated in separate PDB files.
You can switch between Release and Debug versions using the Standard toolbar

When I click Properties, I see a bunch of tabs on left.  None of them has a combo box called "Configuration Properties".
Also, the Build Menu doesn't have a "Configuration Manager"

What can I do so that VS 2005 Standard will display these?

I added the "Solutions Configurations" to the Build Menu, but it is disabled.
