Description Mike Christensen 2011-12-20 20:11:10 UTC
It would be very convenient to be able to right click on a project within a solution and select "Unload" or "Disable" to prevent the project from being built.

The project would then be greyed out, and not included in the build process, but still visible for browsing and searching.

Right now, the only way is to completely remove the project from the solution permanently.

Can't you just remove it from the solution configuration?
