Release Configuration (Thijs) - 1/24/2007 12:32 PM PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • By: Thijs

    When creating a C# project in Blend, only a debug configuration is created. 
    When I open the project in Visual Studio, I would like to create a Release 
    configuration too. Compiling the release version does not work since I am 
    missing a Main(). Is there a way to create a debug and release configuration 
    using Blend? Thanks.

    I general I think you'll be better off using Visual Studio to manage
    deployment for your application.
    I will also definitely make sure your feedback is considered in v2 planning
    for Blend.
    thanks!

    Unfortunately for v1 there is no way to do this from within Blend. As an
    alternative you can open the project in Visual Studio and setup the
    configurations from there.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for the feedback!

    Mario,
    Here's a situation in which Blend's current config management features 
    promote pain and suffering:
    
    In a project I'm working on, there is no "Debug" configuration.  This config 
    has been removed and has been replaced with two different debug configs, 
    "Debug A" and "Debug B".  It appears that when Blend can't find the default 
    "Debug" config it just picks the first config it can find alpabetically.  In 
    my case the config it chooses is not the config I need.  In order to get 
    Blend to build correctly and after a good amount of confusion, I've had to 
    use VS to re-add the default "Debug" config and modify it so it is identical 
    to one of the other configurations.
    
    The ability to select from a list of available configurations would really 
    help!
    
    Thanks,
    
    Tommy
