  • The App Studio, when used with:
    • Microsoft Visual C++ 1.0 Professional Edition

This article was previously published under Q106060


In some situations, App Studio does not detect that a string table resource or cursor hotspot has been modified, and therefore fails to display a "Save Changes" prompt. The problem occurs when the user exits App Studio from either the File or the System menu. If the user has not explicitly saved the string table or cursor, any changes made to it are lost.


To ensure that changes are saved, explicitly save them by choosing Save from the File menu or by closing the string table editor or cursor editor after making changes. When you close the string table editor or cursor editor before exiting, App Studio will display the Save Changes prompt as expected.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the products listed at the beginning of this article. This bug was corrected in App Studio version 1.5, included with Microsoft Visual C++ for Windows version 1.5.


Perform the following four steps to demonstrate the problem:

  1. Open a project with a string table or cursor resource.
  2. Invoke App Studio and modify one of the string table entries or change the cursor hotspot.
  3. Choose Exit from the File menu or Close from the System menu without closing the string table editor or cursor editor. Note that no "Save Changes" prompt is displayed.
  4. Reopen App Studio and observe that the string table or hotspot change was lost.
