Compile time warning (save during build) in VS 2008

Jun 29, 2009 at 1:03 PM


I'v got the newest version installed and now I get:


Save during build


An editor or project is attempting to save a file that is modified in memory. Saving files during a build is dangerous and may result in incorrect build outputs in the future. Continue with save?


Continue Cancel


BVI Plugin is probably changing files too late and they are already compiling. Can any one reproduce this bug? How fix it?

Having the same problem. VS 2008 32 bit windows server 2003 dev machine. Any fix for this?

If i'm correct this could be fixed by adding a build task and there run BVI logic inside instead of attaching to build events and running BVI as project extension. Can anyone confirm this?

Dear Blacha,

I having same problem too but dont undestand how to fix with a "build task" and "run as project extension" ! can you explain me steps to do this ?
Anyway, BVI is a helpful tool !
