automatic save option

Is there an option in Visual Basic that will allow vb to save the program while it is being worked on  in 15 minute increments for example?

Just add a timer to your form, and set it's interval to 60000 that is one minute (65535 is max), every timer event increment a variable and when it is equal to 15 then call the auto save feature and reset counter to 1. That will be the fastest way to get it going.

If you're asking about saving the actual project, just press CTRL+S to save the current module you're modifying (you can do this before moving onto a different one). Good habit in case of crashes... I automatically save without realizing. Of course, there are probably better methods.. but this has worked for me.

Ah I musunderstood what he was asking for.  Not aware of any option that does it either. Just do it naturally too after a few hundred crashes & thousands of lines of code lost.

You can save changes automatically every time you run the program, by going to tools menu then select options and click on the environment tab.

The free website does not have a method to download the program although it is described on the page.
