Debug and Release are different configurations for building your project. Which configuration you use can be set within the Visual Studio environment.

If you select Debug, all compiled binaries will be saved into the debug folder, and vice versa.

Generally you would use Debug mode during development and debugging of your project, whereas you would choose Release mode for the final build for end users.

The Release mode enables optimizations and generates less extra debug data, whereas the debug mode adds lots of extra debug data to make debugging your project easier.


Hope that helps.

Where can you select in VS2010 if you want to use the Debug or Release folder?

Hi,  this is your answer

When you develop your application, it is in debug mode. In this mode, when you build the application, all dlls are created under debug folder.

After development, when you want to deploy your application on production, you have to build it in release mode. In this case, your dlls are created under release folder.

The long way (menu)
1. Open menu "Build" and select "Configuration Manager"
2. In the dialog that opens, select your desired configuration in the drop down in the upper left corner (under Active solution configuration).

Short way
1. In the toolbar (depending on your Visual Studio configuration) there should be a dropdown control which is set to Release or Debug which you could change.
