    VB - Delete Recent Projects

    I have made a program to enable you to easily delete recent VB6 projects
    without having to go into the registry and fiddle around with renumbering
    all the shortcuts etc

    You need to compile it as it wont work if an instance of VB is running.

    Thanks to all the people on here whose code I have copied/modified
    in order to make this work!

    And you can consider making it as add-in to integrate with the IDE . Just a thought ...

    Sure! Move it to the codebank.

    I think I will have to read/copy a few more posts before I make it an addin though.
    Ive never done anything like that before.
    Feel free to modify it if you know how to integrate with the IDE

    It will need modifying and not be a straight conversion.
    The reason it requires that VB isn't running at present is that VB writes
    to the registry as well and it screws the numbering up.

    I was lazy and found it easier to put the check for VB running in rather
    that figure out how to get around the problem above

    Re: VB - Delete Recent Projects

    Hmm, I've searched around a bit, but the only things I could find were apps that used timers to check the registry.
    Not ideal..
