Since vMix25, a warning is given when closing vMix if there are unsaved changes in the current preset.
This is handy in itself, but the warning also comes up if there is a different input in the program than what vMix starts with.

This is irritating because the situation at the end of a livestream is often different than when it starts.
(for instance when displaying a welcome and goodbye screen)

For volunteers, this is confusing and if they press save, vMix does not start up properly the next time.

I would like an option to turn this alert off, or ignoring what is in program when vMix is closing.

Edit: I made a work around with this VB script:

On Error Resume Next
Dim o
Set o = CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")
o.open "GET", "", False
o.open "GET", "", False

(x=program input number and y=preview input number)

And this batch file is a work around for when the preset is accidentally overwritten with other changes:

del /f /q D:\vMix\"vMix Preset.vmix"
copy /y D:\vMix\"vMix Preset (backup).vmix" D:\vMix\"vMix Preset.vmix"
start "" "D:\vMix\vMix Preset.vmix

(this way you always have a backup preset)

With this solution the VB script is not necessary.

Windows allows files to be designated as "Read Only" by right clicking and going into the Properties menu.

It'll still prompt the notification, but if "Save" is selected, it'll generate an error and won't overwrite.

It's a good, simple solution for anyone who just absent mindedly clicks "Save".
