    Resolved [RESOLVED] [2005] VB2005 newbie question

    Hi guys! I have just downloaded and installed VB 2005 Express Edition and I've upgraded one of my projects with out too many errors. I noticed that every time I build my project an XML file, with the same file name as the output file is created. I am not using this XML file to save any settings as far as I know. Does anybody know what this is and how I would get rid of it?

    Thanks in advance!
    I use Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition.

    That is the XML documentation file. You can add XML comments to your classes, properties, methods, etc. and these will be picked up by Intellisense and displayed to you as you use them, just like the standard framework classes. You can also feed that XML file to a tool like NDoc to create MSDN-style CHM documentation.
