vs 2008 build/rebuild in release mode?

I didn't notice this before but when I rebuild the solution in release mode.
Some of the executables and exe.config files do't have the today's timestamp.
Why is that?

Do you know why?

A rebuild all should perform a clean first then a build of each project.

OK.
After doing the clean solution, the exe shows the today's date.
But the .exe.config shows different date.
is that showing the last time I edited the app.config file?

A config file AFAIK isn't part of a build sequence - so the timestamp should be the last edit not last build.
Exe with wrong timestamp - Does your solution have multiple projects (and multiple exe files) ?

OK.
If you do a build (without a clean first) then only the exe files which have had changes in the source files will be recompiled.  In other words you probably had the correct behaviour.

What if you Rebuild it?, it should rebuild all other projects right?
