'Start' in visualstudio .Net always checks projects first ?!?!?

P: n/a
In visual Studio .Net when I start a program in the debugger, it always
starts building all included project files.
This only happens since a few weeks, before that it just started the
program, unless a file in one of the projects was editted.
Now it always builds (not rebuild) even when nothing has changed.

Why is that ? is there some options that can be set ?
Is this the result of some windows update ?

Because my solution includes a 149 projects (yes its a big program),
everytime I want to start the program, I have to wait 5 minutes before the
build is over. Very annoying.

Hi,

First of all I would suggest you to divide your solution, create a smaller
solution with only the projects ( or project ) you are currently working and
use DLL of the others as references.

If you have one than one win app in the same solution, divide them. having
129 projects is overkilling !

Mine always compile the three projects I have included in the solution , of
course if they don't change the process is very fast, IMO it's not compiled
, only checked. but with 129 projects that's too much

maybe you have some problems with the relationship among them.

take a look at the solution properties, there you may find a Build column
with checkboxes.
cheers,

Try
Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->Only build startup projects
