    why is devevn scanning all MDB files?

    Hi, Folks,

    I have a Visual C++ project and a few Microsof Access database files under the same folder. Whenever the C++ project is loaded, visual studio spends lots of time scanning all database files. Does anyone know why and how to avoid that?

    Thanks,

    interesting! Never saw such a VS behavior... Perhaps, since I never placed .mdb files in the source/header folders...

    Just try to move all these .mdb files to some other (work) folder.

    VicotorN,

    Thanks for your reply. Yeah, it is kind of weird when I saw devenv reading all .mdb files by itself in the ProcessMonitor.

    Certain I can move all .mdb file into another separate folder. I just try to understand why it behaves like this. Perhaps it is configurable somewhere.

    Thanks again,

    There is an explorer window that displays the table structures of your databases (I forget its real name). It allows you to do db things like add columns, create tables, etc. If this window is open, it is going to scan the db files in your project. If the window is closed is shouldn't scan the db files (but it still may).
