How to: Manage Build Configurations with Visual Basic Developer Settings Applied

By default, all advanced build configuration options are hidden with Visual Basic Developer settings applied. This topic explains how to manually enable these settings.

By default, the Visual Basic Developer settings hide the option to open the Configuration Manager dialog box and the Configuration and Platform lists in the Project Designer.

To enable advanced build configurations

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.

  2. Expand Projects and Solutions, and click General.


    The General node is visible even if the Show all settings option is unchecked. If you want to see every option available, click Show all settings.

  3. Click Show advanced build configurations.

  4. Click OK.

    On the Build menu, Configuration Manager is now available, and the Configuration and Platform lists are visible in the Project Designer.
