What happened to the beta 2 Profile menu in the Settings project property page? RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of THE coolest features I learned to facilitate deployment in beta 2 was the Profiles menu in the Settings project properties page.  I created a profile for Development, Staging and Production.  Within each profile, I defined different applicationSettings for things that change in each environment in lock-step like SMTP server, application URL and support email addresses.  Changing the profile would automatically update the <applicationSettings> element in the App.config file.  And by referencing its keys in C# like {projectNameSpace}.Properties.Settings.{applicationSettingsKey}, the code would automatically get the current App.config values.

    After I installed VS.NET 2005 RTM, I can no longer see a Profiles menu on the Settings project properties page!!! 

    HOW DO IT GET IT BACK?
