If you have used previous versions of XNA Game Studio, particularly if you do cross-platform game development, you are probably used to seeing the following drop downs on the standard toolbar in the Visual Studio IDE:

  • Solution Configurations drop down (which contains options like Debug and Release)
  • Solution Platforms drop down (which contains options like x86, Windows Phone, Xbox 360, Mixed Platforms, etc)

The Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone IDE that comes with the Windows Phone Developer Tools does not include either of the above drop downs on the standard toolbar by default, and it took me a little while to figure out the set of steps required to add them.

Fortunately, my colleague Michael Klucher documented these steps in a recent post on his blog (complete with step-by-step instructions and screenshots) to make it easier for folks who want to use these drop downs.  I encourage you to check out his blog post if you would like to enable the Solution Configurations and Solution Platforms drop downs in Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone.

  • Hi Rasheed - This question isn't related to this blog post, and it is not in my areas of expertise.  I'd suggest posting a question on one of the Visual Studio forums at social.msdn.microsoft.com/.../visualstudio and hopefully someone there will be able to help you with this question.
