Message: BoundsChecker settings are unavailable until a project is opened
This article pertains to all version since 7.1 of BoundsChecker.
You need to have an executable project open, and set as the top level project in your workspace (set as the startup project) in order to change the BC settings. BC associates the settings file with the executable, and saves them in the executable's directory. If you have a dll project open, or an empty workspace, the BC settings will be unavailable.
