Reset your project, proceed anyway?

Reset your project, proceed anyway?

Reset your project, proceed anyway?

For some unknown reason, and I have not a clue as to what I did.  I keep getting this Microsoft Visual Basic warning message every time I run any program I have written. The message is: “This action will reset your project, proceed anyway?” If someone else runs the same program from their machine, they do not get the message. I have rebooted, and turned the machine off for a weekend and the message still comes up.  It does not matter is the program is old or new. Can you tell me what button to push to turn this message off for good?


RE: Reset your project, proceed anyway?


I use VBA in MS Office products, not VB, but they are very similar.  In the VBA editing environment, under Tools/Options... there is a checkbox with the following: "Notify before state loss".  With this option checked, you get the very message you have described when something changes in code that pre-empts the current run-time state (leading to loss of assigned variable values, etc.).  I would look for a similar option.  More importantly, however, I would seek out the source of this notification.

Hope this helps.

RE: Reset your project, proceed anyway?

M. Smith
Thank you so very much for your idea and quick response time.  I found “Notify when changing shared project items” in Visual Basic and un-checked that box.  No help, but I started to use Visio about the same time this warning started.  Went into Visio and un-checked that box. Tried two different Visual Basic programs and no warning.  This is so great.
Thanks again for the help.
