c# – in the build project process what is the meaning of skipped=1 – Education Career Blog

I have a solution with the main project, helping project and installation project

When I build or rebuild the main project I get:

Build: 1 succeeded or up-to-date, 0 failed, 1 skipped

Now since the helping project generate the following message:

Build: 1 succeeded or up-to-date, 0 failed, 0 skipped

I don’t understand what is being skipped (I have 1 success in the main file … so 1 out of 1 ?!)

What’s wrong and how can i fix it?



Each project (csproj-file or other project-type like setup-project) in your solution should correspond to 1 build-item.
If an item is skipped, it is not needed in your current build. For example: if you build your main program, the setup-project will not be compiled, because the program does not depend on it.
You can also configure multiple build configurations, where in some configurations certain projects are not build, e.g. in your debug-config you can leave out the setup, or in your release-config you may leave out some unit test libs.
