    Default Default Active Solution in ClanLib 0.9

    When you do a clean install of ClanLib 0.9, after running configure-vc90.sln with all the options selected (visual studio 2008 - 9.0)

    When you load ClanLib.sln, and inspect the active solution:

    The "Static Lib with DLL debug runtime and unicode build" is automatically selected.

    This could cause problems for new users - as some of the examples are not unicode compatible.

    Ideally, the active solution should default to "Static List with Static debug runtime"

    How can we do this?

    It seems the setting is not stored in the solution, but it must be stored somewhere!

    Unless visual studio is always picking the second solution in a sorted configuration list for a new solution. (Then storing it somewhere in the registry)

    Default

    I don't really know anything about this, but maybe it is stored in the user-only .suo file:

    .suo: Solution User Options

    Records all of the options that you might associate with your solution so that each time you open it, it includes customizations that you have made.

    This is a binary file, so if the selected solution is stored here, I'm afraid there isn't much we can do.

    Yes, i think you are right.

    Looking at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb165909.aspx (Visual Studio SDK - Solution User Options (.Suo) File)

    There is not much we can do about it.

    Default

    Well we could always not generate these configurations per default. Or we could rename them so its a different one that is chosen first per default (unless its the order in the .sln/.vcproj file that decides this).
