Default Configuration Manager

I have recently installed Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition and upgraded a Visual Basic project written in Visual Studio 2003 (.NET 1.1). When I loaded the project I could not find the Configuration Manager or the option to build a Debug or Release compile of my project.

I consulted the 'Working with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005' manual that came with the boxed retail edition I purchased and in Chapter 2 (Project Management in Visual Studio 2005) it explained that to access the Configuration Manager I needed to enter Build.ConfigurationManager into the Command window.

I did this however I received the following response, again in the Command window:

Command "Build.ConfigurationManager" is not available.
I tried Googling this response and no results were returned, so I decided to write this post to help others with this rather confusing predicament.

The solution is to click on Options... in the Tools menu, then click on the General node under the Projects and Solutions node, then ensure there is a tick mark next to the Show advanced bu[u]i</u>ld configurations option. Finally click the OK button.

You should now be able to access the Configuration Manager by either clicking on Configuration Manager... in the Build menu or by typing Build.ConfigurationManager into the Command window.

Seems kind of silly that this is considered an "Advanced" option. Thanks for the post though. I have been looking around for this myself. So many folks never post when they actually find something that works! Thanks again
