Release Notes

Clean Project is a utility that cleans Visual Studio project directories so you can quickly upload or email a zip file with your solution.

How many times have you wanted to send a project to a friend or upload it to a web site like MSDN Code Gallery only to find that your zip file has lots of stuff that you don't need to send in it making the file larger than it needs to be.
  • bin folder
  • obj folder
  • TestResults folder
  • Resharper folders
And then if you forget about removing Source Control bindings whoever gets your project will be prompted with errors about Source Control.
With Clean Project, I simply run it and get a nice clean folder or zip file that I can share without any of these issues. For more see Clean Project Overview

Great utility! I combine it with kdiff3 for ultimate efficiency. Sometimes I get an error, so I move the folder to C:\ before running the tool to shorten the paths. Thanks for the source code, too!

Once installed it works perfectly with a minimum of fuss. Thanks very much for this time and space saver. I did have some hassles installing it on Windows Server 2008 R2, which I commented on the installation instructions page.

Does exactly what it says. I used it to quickly copy a project from my laptop to my desktop. Thanks for this tool!

Great solution to quciky extract the real source (without any rubbish) for offline archives or when old source control servers no longer exist and must be stripped, e.g. opening old source which was linked to SourceSafe. Version 1.2.0 fixes problems which preventing it running with my setup. *** Hope this is built-in to the next version of VS ***
