    I have my project saved on a USB pen drive so that I can work on it from both my PC at the office at home.

    The pen drive is mapped at E: on both machines.

    In Visual Studio > Options > Projects and Solutions, Visual Studio projects location: is set to
    E:\Visual Studio 2005\Projects

    Thus, my project is located in
    E:\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\My_Project\My_Project.sln

    When I create a new .orm file in my_project.sln and save as, its location defaults to:

    E:\Visual Studio\Projects\My_Project\ (as expected)

    .cs files, including those generated from a .orm file end up in:

    E:\Visual Studio\Projects\My_Project\My_Project\*.cs , My_Project.csproj

    as long as I save, close, and reopen the project on the same machine, all .orm and .cs files open with the project.

    But when I move to the other machine, only the .cs files open; the .orm files have to be added back into the project again. this happens each time I move to the other machine.

    Is this a problem with Visual Studio, or could it be a problem with the NORMA extension?

    Right now this isn't a huge problem, but when the project accumulates a lot more files, it is worrisome.

    This is also probably the appropriate time to ask about Options > Projects and Solutions []Prompt for symbolic renaming when renaming files. What does this do and should it be checked?

    Suggestions welcome.

    Thanks,

    Joe Shirk

      I didn't have my Wheaties. in place of \Visual Studio\ I meant \Visual Studio 2005\
