Did you know… How to change the build order for your solution? – #333 – Sara Ford’s Weblog – Site Home – MSDN Blogs

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/08

Boy I wish I had known this earlier. Like years ago…

In the Solution Explorer:

  1. Right Click Project
  2. Project Build Oder.
  3. Use the dialog to change the build order

It is next to the “Project Dependencies” in this image from Sara Ford:

Sara Ford: change

Sara Ford: change “Project Build Order”

In the resulting dialog, you can change the build order within your solution.

This can be very useful when – for various reasons – you cannot have Project Level dependencies for an assembly, but have to have Assembly Reference dependencies for individual assemblies.

At a client I bumped into this, and this dialog was a life saver for us.

Others have used it because some Visual Studio versions miscalculate the dependencies.
