How can I disable Autosave in VB 2008?

I went to Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->Build and Run

I set Before Building to Don't save any changes but I keep getting this error if I try to build:

"The file C:\Documents and Settings\...\Form1.vb cannot be modified at this time."

If I set it to Save all changes, it is working fine.

Tools + Options, Project and Solutions, Build and Run.  Set "Before building" to "Don't save any changes".

Thanks, but I already tried that and got the error message I mentioned in the question.

Is your project saved in sourcesafe or something alike ? I just tried it here and it did work without any problem. If you start a new project, can you change it then ?

Same problem even on new projects.

This site shows the same problem I encounter but it has no solution for it yet.

Are you using visual studio express or the full visual studio ?
I'm afraid that as long as there is no solution on the feedback page of ms (the link you've provided) the problem won't be solved

No worries. You can't if there is no solution for it yet. :)
