  • It does not have this.

    Not knowing your environment, I suggest placing the project on your personal computer and not allow sharing from another computer or network.

  • I need protect my project with password, when open VS i need put my password to open my project. but VS not have this ?


    One can't prove a negative, but I'm not aware of this being available.

    It wouldn't make much sense if it were though: All of your .vb files are just plain text files.

  • You could stop someone by using UAC on the VS.exe to prompt for admin account. If user is not admin on the computer, then the user is prompted for admin account with password before VS will start.
