    Resolved [RESOLVED] Saving forms, projects, etc. always want to save in the VB98 folder on the C drive

    Is there a workaround to prevent that, I save all my projects on my D drive.

    Do you mean when you create a new project?

    C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter

    I know later versions of Visual Studio can do it but I have no idea if this could be done in Visual Studio 6. Perhaps someone else would know how. I'd expect it to be able to do this.

    I've lived with it for 20 years or so, but thought I'd ask.

    Change the "Start In" location of the short cut to where you want

    Oh you changed the working directory through the Windows shell. I guess that works too. Later versions like Visual Studio 2019 saves to the last folder you created a project in. I thought that there would be a way to get Visual Studio 6 to do it too.

    If you save the VB6 project first the path is where save it (App.path), if you run or at first save always point to VB installation folder (C:\program files\ms visual\vb98\ or where u installed it)
