We have moved our projects from VS2008 to VS2010(Ulitmate) but staying with .Net 3.5. In VS2008 we had a web deployment project that would compile the web project to a single dll and emit full debug information, adding the new web deployment project in VS 2010 to do the same the dll is produced along with the pdb but when a dev attempts to debug the variable comes back with "Cannot evaluate expression because the code of the current method is optmized".In VS2008 we had a targets fix file which had the setting for the optimization but these don't appear to work under 10 (plus the targets file has grown).Thanks,Simon

But for applications in which CPU time and memory are precious resources, minimizing the time spent garbage collecting can greatly improve application performance and robustness. Find out how to manage memory all over again.
