VISUAL STUDIO COMUNITY 2015 STRANGE BEHAVIOUR

    Question

  • I am running Windows 10 Professional with November update and I have noticed a quirk of sorts, when I build my application it is compiled to Visual Studio 2015\Projects\FirstAidChecklist\firstAidChecklist\obj\Debug however the compiled executable is not moved or copied to Visual Studio 2015\Projects\FirstAidChecklist\firstAidChecklist\bin\Debug where it should be.

    Is anyone else having this issue and has found a solution, I have tried running visual studio as an admin but it still happens, I should point out that I do move project from my desktop to my laptop however the security privlages are in tact as far as I can see.

    Any help apreciated

    >> I have further noticed that it only happens, sometimes, when I copy the project from or to a new computer with visual studio 2015 community.

    Before you move your project, I suggest you delete the bin folder, then move your project, rebuild your project, and then open the output folder with right clicking Solution->Open Folder in file explorer to check whether the bin folder generate correctly.

    Best Regards,

    Did you mean the Output path of build was wrong? If so, I suggest you check the Output path property with the steps: Right click project-> Properties->Build->Output->Output path.

  • The output path is correct, I have further noticed that it only happens, sometimes, when I copy the project from or to a new computer with visual studio 2015 community.

    I have run sfc/scannnow tor violations and none exist, I ran setup to repair the install but no luck.
