How many people use the default directory when saving a project (x:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Stuido\Vb98\)? Few I would suspect.  This is a major pain in the gazoo. Does anyone know of a possible registry entry for the default "save" directory?

An alternate solution:
  Create a shortcut for VB executable (vb5.exe)  and specify the Start in path where you want to store your files by default.
