What I want to happen is the program to stop and display any errors. with 'F5'

    Accepted Solution

    Open Visual Studio -> Tools -> Options, expand Projects and Solutions, select Build and Run, see setting "On Run, when build or deployment errors occur". I keep mine set to Prompt to launch, but you might like Do not launch.

    I'm not sure exactly. Try adding it to your project and see if this helps. If not in a project, you can select which editor you want to open the file with. Take a look at this following article. You might need to post a separate question on EE.
