I have a ASP.Net 2.0 project and I am using MS Development Studio 2005. There is the application's .DLL in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\pbfamily\bin which I like to rebuild. I played around with the Platform and Configuration settings in the Configuration Manager, but this .DLL is not being rebuilt now and can't seem to rebuild this file. I was rebuilding for a x64 platform, and have Debug, Release, and x86 folders underneath the bin.

How can I get this .DLL in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\pbfamily\bin rebuilt now?

how do you know that the dll is not rebuild? Did you make any changes to the code and did not see the recent changes? If yes, after you changed the code and hit "rebuild" did the application give any error or gave a "build successful" message at the bottom?

The date modified for the .DLL in the bin directory does not change. The date on .DLL in the bin/release folder does.

I changed the code and selected Rebuild Project. At the bottom, Everytime it says it has rebuild the .dll in the \bin\release folder. How do I get the .DLL rebuilt in the bin folder? Does VS use this for debug mode?

Does VS use this for debug mode?
No. To build it in debug mode .. open the "configuration properties" of the project .. right click and select properties to get to this section .. change the "configuration" from "release" to "debug"

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

when you rebuild .. by the way, both the release and debug folder are within the "bin" folder ... so did you mean, when is it build in the bin\debug folder?

Just the bin folder is where the .DLL is that does not get rebuilt. In the bin\Release and bin\Debug folders, .DLLs are rebuilt there.

there shouldn't have been a dll in the bin folder .. if the configuration is debug, the dll is build in the bin\debug folder and if it is release, then the dll is build in the bin\release folder ...

This project was VS 2003 .Net 1.1 project. Perhaps, this was a carry over from that version. However, before I was playing around with the Configuration Manager, that .DLL in the bin folder was being rebuilt.

i think using the configuration manager u can change the path where you want the dll to be build into for each type .. so maybe debug had it set to be build in the bin folder ..
