Configuration Manager - missing / cannot find.

#1
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..."?
