For a while now I have not been able to develop on my laptop running Vista. Whenever I would try and do a "Save All" Studio would freeze. However many times if I did individual Saves for forms and such, it would seem to work. Due to
this odd behavior, I had blamed Studio
and went through all the troubleshooting steps. I had pretty much given up.
Create a new VB Windows ApplicationAdd a couple controls to the Form1Create a New Application Setting (Just something simple like a single String Setting)Add a new Form2 with some controls.Click the [Save All].....
Studio will Lock Up.
This weekend I was doing some work on my XP machine and it started acting up. It had never done that before. So I started looking at other things and low-and-behold, If I shut down Zone Alarm, everything would work (including on my Vista Machine)
This lead to some testing... I tried Individually turning off Virus, Spyware, and Program Control functions in ZA (Internet Security Suite). Turns out it was the Virus Portion.
So... I have added DevEnv.exe to the Virus Exception List and so far so good. It's only been a day or two, but before following those steps above, I could never save. Now I can so at least I have some odds in my favor.
Hope this will help someone else, so I thought I'd add it to the forum.
