VS 2005 question: Why am I losing my configuration files on build?
Posted on 2009-07-14
Here's the problem. My configuration files for a web service and several dlls seem to have just vanished after I build the solution.
Now the web service works just fine; however, I use those config files to change app settings on the fly without having to recompile... but cannot do that here because they no longer exist. And, man, I need them to exist.
Now, its my understanding that all of the My.settings settings are stored into configuration files named after the DLL or app they are associated with (example: SomeDLL.dll.config). Its always been that way when I did a regular app.
This web service, though, seems to embed them.
Any help on getting this fixed is greatly appreciated. An explanation would be nice, too!
