By default every time you compile a WindowsApplication or ConsoleApplication project using VS2005, a “vshost.exe” and a “vshost.exe.config” files are created on the \Bin\Debug and \Bin\Release paths.

The purpose of these “vshost.exe” and a “vshost.exe.config” files is described here.

To disable this feature you need to:

  1. Open a project in Visual Studio.
  2. On the Project menu, click Properties.
  3. Go to the Debug Tab
  4. Clear the Enable the Visual Studio hosting process check box.

Another common question is if we need to deploy these files and the answer is No, the "*.vshost.exe" and "*.vshost.exe.config" files are only for use in the Visual Studio 2005 IDE
