Debug and Release build in Visual Studio Express edition

So.. where did it go? It took me a couple of minutes to find it but it seems to be an "advanced" feature 🙂

Go to:
Tools –> Options…

Check the ‘Show all settings’ box in the lower right corner

Then go to:
Projects and Solutions –> General

Check the ‘Show advanced build configurations’ box somewhere in the middle section.

Now you will have the option to quickly toggle between debug and release builds in the toolbar and see all sort of ‘advanced’ features in the solution and project properties.

This also gives access to the option to use tabs instead of spaces. Don’t know why the default is spaces. I want to decide myself how many spaces a tab should be ;-).
