Configuration Manager - missing / cannot find.

P: n/a
I am going throug a vb 2005 book, but I am using vs 2008 professional, and I
cant seem to find a menu option its talking about.
I am wondering if this has moved - i cannot seem to find it for the life of
me in any of the menus.
Looking at the help file however - it says the menu option is exactly how my
book states but I do not have it.

I created a Dummy Windows Application - saved it ( solution and project )
and I cannot find the Configuration Manager.

-----------here is what the windows help says under (Configuration Manager)
You can create your own configurations using the Configuration Manager
dialog box.

To open the Configuration Manager dialog box
In Solution Explorer, select the solution.

On the Build menu, choose Configuration Manager.

<I do not have this menu option >

------------here is what my book says

It says -
To create a custom project configuration, select the Configuration Manager
command on the Build menu or on the context menu that appears when you
right-click the solution node in the Solutions Explorer. ( See figure
4-15. )

Figure 4-15 has a window
"Configuration Manager
the top dropdown box has a label of
"Active Solution Configuration" with a "Debug" option selected...
and beside it there is an "Active Solution Platform:" label with a dropdown
with "Any CPU" listed

There is a datagride with a heading label:
"Project contexts (check the project configurations to build or deploy):
and the columns are:
Project / Configuration/ Platform / Build

I have noticed that there is a difference in the toolbar above that has an
icon "Start Debugging",
I do not have a dropdown that shows the "Debug or Release or Configuration
Manager" dropdown box.

Thanks,

Miro

Wierd... I have professional and it works that way (as the text states).

If you right click on the solution, in the right panel (Solution Explorer),
do you have a context menu item that says "Configuration Manager..."?
