    Configuration Manager - missing / cannot find.

    No,

    My menu options are: ( or were ) ( see below )

    I found it...I had to go to "Tools Menu", "Options", and under "Projects and
    Solutions" I had to go to "General"
    and then click the checkbox ( that was not checked ) - Show Advanced Build
    Configurations

    Thanks for your help and quick reply...it got me thinking that I had a
    'setting' setup wrong on my VS and lead me to the options menu.

    Wierd... I have professional and it works that way (as the text states).

    If you right click on the solution, in the right panel (Solution Explorer),
    do you have a context menu item that says "Configuration Manager..."?
