I don't understand the bin folders in C#.Net solutions
Posted on 2010-03-24
I normally have only one project in my solutions. Recently, I started a project which was to be a dll. It resides in a folder c:\clients\Client_name\RMAProcessing (this is where the classes, the sln, suo, and project files are). The end result is a dll called RMAProcessing.dll.
In order to test the dll, I wanted to add a project to my solution to produce TestDll.exe. it resides in c:\clients\Client_name\TestDll (this is where the classes and project file are, but, of course, no sln or suo file).
After compiling the solution, I am confused re: the dll.
In c:\clients|Client_name\RmaProcessing\bin\release, the dll is 823 kb
In c:\clients\Client_name\TestDll\bin\release, the dll is 908 kb
Both were created at the same time.
Which version is my deliverable dll?
