Bug in Visual Studio 2022: VS doesn't record the line of resourceId + resourceType + external file in the process of creating custom resource.

CustomResource.zipThis is the version I used now

I created a empty solution then add a empty project. After that, copy a file poepoem.txt to the project folder, add a custom resource whose type is TEXT, in the Filename field filled with poepoem.txt. Save. Pop up an error:

I tried many times, It is hard to add a custom resource successfully in this way. I have to add
IDR_TEXT2 TEXT "poepoem.txt"
to the resouce script. In other words, Visual Studio didn't add this line. I uploaded this project here CustomResource.

Hi, thanks for help. I use the following steps.
1. Create an blank solution in Visual Studio latest version named CustomResource
2. Add an empty C++ project to this solution. Named TestCustomResource.
3. Copy the file poepoem.txt into the project TestCustomResource (in the folder TestCustomResource)
4. Add poepoem.txt in the Resource Files filter.
5. Right click Resource Files then Add a resource.
6. Click Custom, resource type is TEXT.
7. Double click the resouce script TestCustomResource.rc.
8. Now we switch to the Resource View, under the TestCustomResource.rc folder, we can see the "TEXT" resource type.
9. Click IDR_TEXT1, in the field Filename of the Properties window, fill up poepoem.txt then press Enter.
10. Press the Save button (like a softdisk)

Sometimes, you will get an error message box here(I often got this error yesterday), sometimes you dont get this error, but cannot see the poem echo. In any case, the resouce script TestCustomResource.rc doesn't contain a line of text
IDR_TEXT1 TEXT "poepoem.txt"
I think this is a bug.
(btw, the poepoem.txt can be any text file)
