The automatically saved settings file ‘CurrentSettings.vssettings’ cannot be found error

By | June 2, 2016

I moved my documents from

D

drive back to

C

and this is what I got in both Visual Studio and Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio:

The automatically saved settings file 'sql server management studioSettingsSQL Server Management StudioCurrentSettings-2013-06-06.vssettings' cannot be found. You can change this file on the 'Import and Export Settings' Tools Options page. The IDE will use your most recent settings for this session.

The automatically saved settings file 'sql server management studioSettingsSQL Server Management StudioCurrentSettings-2013-06-06.vssettings' cannot be found. You can change this file on the 'Import and Export Settings' Tools Options page. The IDE will use your most recent settings for this session.

To fix this:

Step 1

Go to Tools/Options

  • SQL Server Management Tools/Option
    SQL Server Management Tools/Option

or

  • Visual Studio Tools/Option
    Visual Studio Tools/Option

Step 2

Go to Environment/Import and Export Settings and change the path to existing one. I’ve used the path to my documents

  • SQL Management Import and Export Settings
    SQL Management Import and Export Settings

or

  • Visual Studio Import and Export Settings
    Visual Studio Import and Export Settings

      no, why do you say that? it just to change the path in Visual Studio or SQL Management Studio _once_ and you do not overwrite any settings.
