Where are User Tasks from the Task List in Visual Studio.NET Stored?
I'm not sure why I wanted to know this, but I was looking for where the User Tasks (not the auto-generated Comment Token Tasks) were stored from Visual Studio.NET.
They are stored in the Solution file's (.SLNs) parallel Solution User Options (.SUO) file. This file appears to be OLE Structured Storage, even in Whidbey.
Now I know.
P.S. We, as a policy, don't check either *.SUO files or *.CSPROJ.USER files into source control (we've added them to .CSVIgnore) as they are totally user-specific options and would not only clutter and confused, but potentially share settings and tasks we don't want to share.
