    I was wondering why make this kind of application instead of just adding release build dll's into your download packages?
    seems a lot simpeler and more important safer.
    Id just wanna switch the dlls based on my visual studio configuration, but I don't feel that it's safe for me to run them through such an application and hope they work the same as the debug build.

    could you please explain what it should do better then just a release build?

    thanks in advance,

    Hello Wim,

     The main idea behind this application is to strip unneeded components. For example if you need only slider you can get an assembly only with slider without other controls.
