Build an application with VisualStudio and IronPython, PTVS

Jul 26, 2012 at 7:47 PM

Hi all,

I try to understand the development with IronPython and PTVS in VisualStudio 2010 and I think that i have not understand the build's method.

I make one little application with IronPython and WinForms but i don't know the way how to do binaries like VisualBasic . With V.B. with  "Build" I do binaries and when I look the " configuration Manager " I see that the choice " build " is checked.   With IronPython and PTVS in "Configuration Manager" i can't check the choice "build". Is it normal ? I think to do wrong manipulation but what ?

Somebody can give me some help ?

Thanks a lot,

Are you trying to build the default IronPython Winform applicatino?  In that case, there is no actual build happen since the python is a interpreter language. The .pyc file will be generated when you run the application. 

May I ask why do you need to select 'build' in configuration manager?
