vb net class library dll file missing

Computer: HP Lab Top
Programming App: VB Net 2005
OS: Windows 7
1. I created a class library
2. I selected build - build solution name
3. A dll was created in the bin/debug directory
4. I used the dll in other projects
5. I went to edit the class library
6. I selected build -> build solution name
7. I went back to the other project and added a reference to the dll file again
8. There was not change to the dll file
9. I went to the bin/debug directory
10. I deleted the dll files
11. brought the class library in the vb net 2005 environment
12. ensured the changes I wanted were made
13. I selected build -> build solution name
14. Received message that build was successful
15. However, I could not find the dlll file in the bin/debug directory

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong and how I can resolve this issue

In your DLL project, make sure you still have your project set to "Debug" and  not "Release"--it doesn't really matter which you use, just make sure you check the appropriate folder after you build.

In you other project, actually remove the reference, then add it back again, making sure to point to the folder you located from above.
