When should you use "Clean" and when should you not? RRS feed

  • Question

  • What exactly does "Clean" do and are there times when it shouldn't be used?

    Why do I ask? Because while attempting to include Windows authentication in my project things went from bad to worse and I wound up with a project that could no longer connect to the target SQL database no matter what I did.

    I was left wondering how much extraneous stuff might have been left in my project and if remnants are causing problems, so I thought of running "clean" but figured it might be a good idea to ask the experts first. :)

  • Clean will not solve any problems you might have with windows auth.

    When you compile a project, the created binaries are stored in the \debug or \release folder (depending on which configuration you are building).

    A clean, will clean this output.
