Common Issue when Loading/Saving

A common issue when using VEXcode Project files (.vrblocks) is trying to select the .vrblocks file to be opened directly by the operating system.

If you try to open a VEXcode Project file (.vrblocks) by double clicking it, nothing will open.

All VEXcode VR Project files (.vrblocks) can ONLY be opened within VEXcode VR. View the "Load an Existing Project" section from this article for more information.
