I have Visual Studio 2008 and am developing VB.NET applications.

How do I specify if I am building a debug or release version? The description I found of how to do this on the Microsoft site don't seem to be accurate. This should be pretty straightforward shouldn't it? It seems that a friend of mine who does C# development says it is easy in his environment. Are the VS environments different between C# and VB?

Well, I think maybe I finally figured it out. I swear I looked for this before and it was never there, but if I right click on the solution, the "configuration manager" item appears. That seems to be how I set the debug/release compile options. The other option is to go to the "Build" menu and it shows up there too. I'm not sure why I didn't see that before.
