This article will assist in generating a script file which will clear the Recent Solution List on the Start page of™ 2003 Studio.™ 2003 Studio stores its Recent Solution List in the registry and specifically in the
•  “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SourceCode\ Studio\Recent File List”; and
•  “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SourceCode\ Studio\RecentSolutionPaths”
registry paths respectively. When a solution is deleted by a user from the computer’s hard drive, it will still be part of the recently used solution list in™ 2003 Studio, but will of course not exist on the hard drive and will therefore not be possible to open.

Important: Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should backup any valued data on your computer.

In order to clear the recent solution list, you can either remove the keys under these two key paths manually by using the regedit utility (Not Recommended) or by creating a VB script file similar to the one shown below. This script file can be created with any text editor like notepad. If you save the file with a ‘.vbs’ extension, you should be able to just double-click the file in order to execute it.
By adding a couple of lines of code, you should be able to add some functionality to the script like validating the existence of a file on your hard drive before deleting the registry key or confirming the deletion of each solution separately.
