Clean Project



Does anyone know why there is a Clean button in the Batch Build dialog in VS.NET but it fails to do anything? I think this would be a useful feature no? (delete all the files in bin/Debug and bin/Ship). If you rename your assemblies a lot of crud builds up there over time. It would also be nice for zipping source to send to some one (no need to send the output in the /bin and /obj directories).


Maybe it’s fixed in Whidbey?

    I believe the clean only works if you have a project that has a C++ project in the solution. Why it doesn’t have any function in C#, I have no idea.

    I guess the output from C# projects are so "perfect" they don’t need to be cleaned
