VB.NET project in Visual Studio 2013 - using Properties | Compile | Configuration=Release, but .exe is Debug Build
Posted on 2015-01-29
I am trying to generate a "Release Configuration" version of my project.
I have set Properties | Compile | Configuration=Release. (Properties | Application | Configuration is N/A).
The Properties | Compile screen shows "build output path" is bin\Release.
But when I Build, Rebuild or run the project, the generated .exe file appears in bin\Debug, not bin\Release.
The output window includes this line:
------ Rebuild All started: Project: Explorer Prototype, Configuration: Debug x86 ------
confirming the .exe is the Debug build, not a Release build.
