I have both Visual Studio 2008 and Visual C# Express 2008, and I have a project from Visual C# Express 2008 that I'd like to convert to a Visual Studio 2008 project.

I can open the project with VS 2008, and can build it and everything, however it does not actually overwrite previous builds in the project's directories and etc. It's as if the changes I make are only going to be present for as long as I keep VS 2008 open with the VC# Express project loaded.

Is there a way to do this, and if so, is it easy?

I want to discard my need for Visual C# Express 2008, but if I cannot fully edit and maintain my existing VC# Express projects with VS 2008, then I can't get rid of VC# Express (yet, anyway).

This is kind of frustrating.

I don't understand. If you open it using VS2008 and make a change to the source, save it, close it and open it again does the change not persist?

The change will be there, but let's say I build the solution. If I close out of VS 2008 and then browse to the bin\Debug directory, double-click on the exe, the changes in my application are not present. I can't explain it either, it's the weirdest thing.

Edit: Meh, just tried again and it made a liar out of me. Not sure what the problem was, now it seems to be just fine. *sigh*

lol, that happens. I tell my boss to come look at something weird and as soon as he is present it doesn't happen the way I said it would. There is nothing consistent about electricity. :)
