Why doesn't Visual Studio include my referenced library project in my build?


Visual Studio uses the Configuration Manager to determine which projects in a solution are automatically included in a given build or deployment configuration.

Some templates that are generated with a referenced library project will already have the referenced library included in the configuration; but otherwise it will need to be set manually.

How to use the Configuration Manager

  1. Open "Build -> Configuration Manager"
  2. Select the configuration to customize, e.g. Debug | iPhone
  3. Select checkboxes for the projects you wish to include. Note: Greyed out boxes are handled automatically, and shouldn't need any changes.
