    You’re attempting to create a winforms app? If yes, try clicking Windows Desktop in the list on the left. See what options that gives you

    In versions of Visual Studio prior to 2017 if I remember correct, creation of VB.NET project don't allow you to choose the solution and location. This is done when you save the project for first time.

    It was working, but suddenly it has reverted to having to save once I have created the project. It must be a setting I have changed somehow.

    I am creating a Windows Forms App but changing to Windows Desktop doesn't give me any more option unfortunately.

    I just checked every version of VB i have installed. Other than VB2005 and VB2010 and VB2013 which i don't have installed, all versions offered you to choose the solution and location - on creation.
    Must be some setting in your VS Options. Which version are you using VB2017 or VB2019?

    Re: Creating new project

    VS 2008 - no solution and location in dialog. Default project name selected (WindowsApplication1). Click Save - dialog with project name, location and solution name shown

    VS 2013 - exactly the same but the project name is set by default (on creation) to WindowsFormsApplication1

    This is the default behavior for years, it is not an option as these dev environments are kept clean.

    I have always unchecked that option immediately in previous versions of VS, because it means that I can create test projects and have them discarded when I exit. That option has been removed in VS 2019.

    VB2017, yes that's what I figure because it was there and then it wasn't. I'll have another poke around.

    I have that with VB.net 2010 express at work but with the same VB.net 2010 express at home I have the solution and location in dialog. I have to check the exact version of each.

    that should explain why I have the difference on both VS2010. I'll check, thanks
