    Recent items list

    Title: Clear recent projects List

    Description: After a while the recent projects list becomes so full and contains links to projects that dont exist on your system any more, this utility alows you to clear it.

    Author name: Richard Bunt

    System Requirements: VB6, for VB5 it will need an adjustment.

    License info: None

    Future: Will Allow the user the select the items they want to removed and notify them of dead project links.


    EDIT: please see the post below for important notes and an update - the attached code in this post has problems!

    Clear Recent Items Project [Addin is useless]

    Due to the fact that VB6 re writes the registry values back to the registry on unloading the addin is useless . So here is an exe, it has to be run when visual basic isn't running for it to work
