Deleting configurations

P: n/a
Hi there,

I have a solution that I have created quite a few different
configurations for through it's lifetime. Even though I have removed them
from the solution they get left in the individual projects, this is fine and
understandable, but how do I get rid of the ones I don't want any more?
This includes VB.NET / C++ projects...

Hi Nick,

Open the Configuration Manager (Build \ Configuration Manager). Now:

- To delete a solution configuration, dropdown the "Active Solution
Configuration" combobox and select "<Edit>...", select the desired solution
configuration and click the Remove button.

- To delete a project configuration, in the Configuration column of the
grid, dropdown the combobox of the desired project, select "<Edit>..."
select the desired project configuration and click the Remove button.

It's not your fault, this is what happens when you put actions in a combobox
(a bad idea) along with values (a much worse idea), and you do it twice (a
double bad idea) in the same dialog box (Configuration manager) but you
don´t do it (a bad idea not to be consistent with the bad idea) in the
Configuration combobox of the Project Properties dialog box...

Hi Carlos,

Thanks a million! I've been wanting to do that for ages as I've had
configurations sitting there that I stopped using over 8 months ago! Much
tidier now. Cheers.

And I agree with you about the combo box thing, I suppose they crammed
it in there to save space as opposed to making a whole new dialog, which
would have been much more user friendly of course. Cheers again.

Nick.
