How to: Change the Build Location for an Application

Updated: September 2009

The Build output path for a project specifies the directory into which output generated by the project will be placed. By default, this is set to the Bin directory in the current project directory structure.

To change the build location for a project

  1. With a project selected in Solution Explorer, on the Project menu, click Properties.

  2. If you are using Visual Basic, click the Compile tab. If you are using C#, click the Build tab.

  3. In the Build output path (Visual Basic) or Output path (C#) box, type any valid file or Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path, or click the ellipsis button and browse to a directory.
