A.
How to set in registry a drive and path to use as default to load and save files at
'cold' start Vb6, now it allways goes to Microsoft Visual dir.  I want to use for diff.

A. Right-click shortcut which is used to run VB6 and change it's "Start In" directory.

B. No, there is no 'roll-back' feature in VB6. It's settings are stored only in the registry. Once the setting has been changed, there is no way to regain what the old setting were because the new settings overwrite the old ones.

registry settings?.   For now I use a  dummy solution, wich by itself is not a bad idea anywhay,  but timeconsuming,   i make twice a day a driveimage (Powerquest) this I restore.

Registry settings for VB6 are kept in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Visual Basic\6.0. I beleive most of them are in the UI REG_BINARY entry. You can export these settings manually using Regedit program and keep .reg file as backup. To restore settings, double-click .reg file. Maybe there is some utility which can do this, but I don't know about it.
