VSMacros71 folder?

P: n/a
When I open up a project I've made in the VB.NET IDE, a directory named
VSMacros71 (with underlying folders) is created in the same folder as my
project. I've created no macros myself, and the underlying MyMacros
folder is empty.

How can I stop these folders from being created each time I open my
projects?

What project template(s) are you using? I checked a few Windows and web apps
I have and the folder you mentioned does not appear.

Peter,
I'm not creating a new template, just loading old projects. They may
have been created with a macro set that I'm unaware of currently. No
custom templates were used--that much I know.

I found a MyMacros directory in the current user/docs and
settings/...etc directory and deleted it, but it seems to be receated if
the project is loaded. Is there a setup file of some sort that contains
the macros other that this file?

Perhaps my use of the term "template" was confusing. When you invoke the new
project dialog in Visual Studio, you get (in the left panel) a choice of
project type (e.g. Visual Basic Projects). In the right panel you choose the
project template (e.g. Windows Application or Class Library).

So what type(s) of old projects are you opening that have this VS71Macros
folder within them?
Can we assume that your system is free of viruses, trojans, malware, etc.?

Normal, VB Windows Application when I'm creating a new project.

Old projects that were created with the above project (VB Windows
Application).

Yes.

Do you know where in an existing project would exist the macros? I'd
edit these things manually if I could find them. Are the Macros stored
locally within the IDE or project-by-project within the solution or
project files?
