Auto-Save RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to turn off the auto-save feature that automatically saves my changes without my permission when I exit the IDE. I looked in the Options dialog box, but didn't see anything about turning it off. In VB6 you can turn it off. Thanks.

  • Not sure if this is what you are looking for but I will give it a shot:

    Tools-->Options
    Check the box "Show all settings"
    Expand the Environment node and you should see an AutoRecover page where you can uncheck "Save AutoRecover information".
    I am using the release version of Visual Basic 2005 Express available from this morning as a free download here:

  • The only options I am aware of are under Environment -> Project and Solutions

  • I should have been clearer. I am using VB.net 2005 Express. The only options dialog is under Tools -> Options, and I don't see anywhere in the options where you can enable/disable this feature.

  • Would you please describe in more detail the issue you're experience?

    I tried this scenario in VB Express:
    1. Create a new Windows Application project. Save it to a location on disk.
    2. Open it, add some code to the Form_Load event.
    3. Attempt to close the IDE, I will be asked to save or ignore the changes.

    On your machine, if you do step 1 and 2, does the IDE close and save all your chagnes without asking you?
