Including .config files in Builds
Is there an easy way to have the .config file (application configuration file) copied to the release/debug directory whenever you build a project in the IDE?
VS.NET doesn't provide "post-build" actions out of the box. Here's one from Microsoft:
Thanks. There is a lot of downloads there, any idea if there is a page that explains what your downloading before you download it?
Oh, sorry. It's the BuildRules utility.
VS .NET 1.1 rolls in post-build actions for C#, but not for VB .NET.
The problem I had with NAnt was that I loved it too much. :) When I had to start coding with others, I was more or less forced to move to the VS.NET project system, because that's what everybody else wanted to use.
If you name the file "app.config", it will automatically be renamed appropriately and copied to the correct folder during compilation.
Ryan, thanks... That is exactly what I was looking for!
