basically when you compile in debug, extra debugging information is linked into the exe and a pdb file. this enables visual studio to attach to the exe when it is running. You can also debug remotely by starting visual studio debug manager on the remote machine (can be installed).

So for testing there is no real issue but there is a performance overhead with debug. Yes you have to publish you web service.

Hi,
ok i have a dll that sitting in a seperate project i created, Now i then added a reference to it in my main project, should the reference be pointing to the compiled dll in the Release folder or can it be in the debug folder? - If it is the Release folder, if i am in debug mode in my main app will it make any difference whether the dll reference is loaded to the Debug or Release folder?

thanks allot for you input
much appreciated

Hi,

you can point to either really but need the debug version if you plan on debugging into it :)
