Disable Autosave

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.

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

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

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

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.

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