Bin & object folder: what's the difference?

P: n/a
Ant
Hi,

I' thought i'd finally ask... why are there two folders, Bin & Obj when a
project is built? They each have the debug & release version of the exe.
What's the diff?

Thanks for any answers to this simple Q

Ant,

If you set in your Visual Studio the mode on release, you get even three.
There will be added the release.
(This is by the way not consistent, there are more versions from this based
on the version of VS and the project that you build).

I hope this answers than direct your question.

Bin is that what is taken when you use the deployment project.

I'm not sure I understand your answer:
Bin is what is taken when you use the deployment project (??? what does this mean??)
and also what is the 'obj' folder used for?
Thanks Cor
