Question: I keep receiving the following warning when I start XLS Padlock: "The Excel workbook has been modified. You should first save it before compiling it, otherwise your changes will be lost. Are you sure you want to continue without saving?" The workbook is saved and on my desktop (not in the cloud). Can you advise on the fix?


Answer: It appears that even though your file is saved on the desktop, the desktop itself is virtual because it is linked to your OneDrive account, making the file "cloud-based," which may display this "not saved" warning. To resolve this, transfer the file from the virtual desktop to a local drive on your computer. This should correct the issue, as XLS Padlock requires the files to be stored locally, particularly during development and testing phases, to prevent issues related to cloud synchronization or virtual desktop environments.
