  • Question

  • hi,, eveybody

                Well, i hava a new problem, can anyone help me?

        I have a VSPackage , a Project VSPackage that was build following the Project Package of IronPython when i use this VSPackage to a open a .MyCustomFile it opens but it doesnt create any folder like Miscellaneous Files, but when i use this VSPackage in an ISOLATED SHELL project it creates an Miscellaneours Files folder.

  • The Miscellaneous Files folder is a feature of the IDE, and isn't really related to any specific project system.

    You can show or hide the Miscellaneous Files folder from the Tools.Options dialog. Specifically, select the Environment\Documents category, and then check (or uncheck) the "Show Miscellaneous files in Solution Explorer" checkbox.

    Note, you cannot disable the creation of the Miscellaneous Files project. When you open a file in the IDE, it needs to belong to a project. If the file in question does not belong to one of the loaded projects, it's opened using this Miscellaneous Files project. The setting mentioned above simply shows or hides this in the Solution Explorer toolwindow.

  • Hi Ed,

    I am facing same problem. Please try to understand my scenarios.

    I am working on two environments i.e. Development and Instillation. Miscellaneous Files Folder is created only in Installation, not in Development. More to this, I tried your solution in Installation and it works.

    But my question is, Can we implement this solution via code ? Means explicitly hiding from Tools.Options dialog -> Documents Category -> unchecked the "Show Miscellaneous files in Solution Explorer" check box. (Can we set the VS settings via code ?)

    Please suggest the solution.

    Thanks,
