VB .Net - Is there a way to determine the full compiler options for a given solution?

Visual Basic Compiler questions:

I have a solution that contains many references to both managed and unmanaged (COM) objects. Currently, the COM objects are set for isolation mode so that the app can be xcopied to the company's workstations.

Is there a way to determine the exact command line compiler options that that VS uses while in GUI mode? For example, when building the application from with in VB, is there a way to see the exact compile command being used?

If not, how do I specify which .dlls are isolated from the command line?

    not sure if it helps but you can turn the verbosity of the compiler output up
    tools | options | Build & Run | MSBuild Project build output verbosity

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to this. That is exactly the info I was looking for. I was unaware that you can change the verbosity on for builds. Very nice. Thanks!
