You may already know that if you press the F5 key on your keyboard or choose the List – Refresh List menu item in Visual Installer’s editor, the contents of the file list (in the editor’s File List tab) is refreshed.
When a file list is refreshed, file dates and size information etc. is updated. If a file is missing at a source file path, you will be informed about that.
If you want to have the file list refreshed automatically when a project is opened, this is also possible. If you choose the Special – Editor options menu item and select the Update file list automatically option in the dialog box that is shown (see the picture below)
the file list will be updated automatically when the .VIP project file is opened.
