  • Mr. Kashif Khan, thank you for your reply.

    I ran the above command to clean my solution. However after rebuilding my solution it's still not updating my .dll file. Is there the next steps for this?

    I'm running on Windows XP Professional 2002 SP 3 and I'm using VS 2005.

    Thanks for your help.
