Hello
If I compile my c# Project in VS2010, I finde two folders in my Project Path (bin and obj). In both I finde the folder Release and Debug (depending how I compile my Project). This gives me 4 folders and everyone contains the Project DLL.

What is the difference between the bin folder and the obj Folder?

Which DLL I have to select, if I want to use the objects of my project in another project ?

Thanks for you Inputs !!

the obj folder is used to hold temporary builds used during design time. the bin folder is what you should be using..

The .obj folder is just junk the compiler used to build your executables. Ignore it.

To use your stuff in another project use the bin\release dll unless you want to be able to debug stuff in that dll from the new project in which case you would use the bin\debug dll.

In any case, when you release the final project use all the dlls from the release folders.
