Common Issue when Loading/Saving

A common issue when using VEXcode V5 project files (.v5blocksskills) is trying to select the .v5blocksskills file to be opened directly by the operating system.

If you try to open a VEXcode V5 project file (.v5blocksskills) by double clicking it, nothing will open.

All VEXcode V5 project files (.v5blocksskills) can ONLY be opened within the web-based version of VEXcode V5. See the ‘Load an Existing Project’ section from this article for more information.
