Changing the default VB project

Hi,
  I do a lot of work in VB on small to medium sized Enterprise apps and I'm getting tired of making the same references to ADO 2.1, Microsoft Common Controls, etc.
  Is there any way for me to change VB settings so that I can have the same references each time I launch the IDE?
  Thanks in advance.

Create a new project and add all your references, then save it into your {YOUR VISUAL BASIC DIRECTORY}\Template\Projects\ directory.

vbmaster : I meant : I want to follow up the answers to this question ....

In earlier versions (< 4.0?) there was a way, yes.  You could open a project, modify whatever you wanted, and then save it as "default.vbp" (or .mak)
Then, that project would become your default project.

This, I think, can't be done anymore in 6.0.  At least, I don't know how.  Maybe there's a way, and therefore I want to follow this ....

And, your solution doesn't make it default ... you have to go and choose it.  You can't just click "Standard EXE" and have an app with all the references !!

Hey VbMaster
  Thanks a bunch! I bestow upon you 100 points.
  I thought there was some file somewhere that I would open up in notepad and edit.

Hi again
  I guess the point total got changed to 10. Not my doing.
  I just figured since I couldn't get it, it had to be worth a lot of points. lol

Take Care

The points changes to 10 because that's the points other people has to pay to read this question later (10% of its initial 'value'). That means the initial value was 10x10 = 100. ;)
