By default every time you compile a WindowsApplication or ConsoleApplication project using VS2005, a “vshost.exe” and a “vshost.exe.config” files are created on the \Bin\Debug and \Bin\Release paths.
The purpose of these “vshost.exe” and a “vshost.exe.config” files is described here.
To disable this feature you need to:
- Open a project in Visual Studio.
- On the Project menu, click Properties.
- Go to the Debug Tab
- Clear the Enable the Visual Studio hosting process check box.
Another common question is if we need to deploy these files and the answer is No, the "*.vshost.exe" and "*.vshost.exe.config" files are only for use in the Visual Studio 2005 IDE
