When I open my project in VB5 (service pack 3), VB opens code windows of several modules, which I was working on several weeks ago, but not the latest set of modules. How to change its behavior to force VB to display only the windows I had opened just before I closed VB? I tried to save vbp file, but it didn't do any difference.

I know wath you mean, because when i open a project and 25 windows code don't stop load, it's very bad... so like percosolator say, when i want just 2-3 windows open when i Load or start or stop project, just open the windows you need and the next time you open this project you gonna have just your windows you selected.  i work too everyday in VB, and i we loose time with that .... windows open...   good bye.

People, thank you for your prompt responces, but you still did not answer my question... Fortunately, I found the solution. And this is an unimportant bug in VB5: There is a file with extension 'vbw', which contains information about VB environment (which code windows are opened, etc.). When you hit "Save project", it will save the project, yes, but if your vbw file is read-only (it is often the case if you use SourceSafe and vbw file is not checked out), VB fails to tell you that vbw file is read-only and just does not save it without any message...
