    5. Thanks for quick answering. It's much appreciated. I found that mistake is somewhere in preferences of user profile. I installed 4.0.1 version, but auto-compilation still not worked. Then I deleted user profile and WING made new one. After this auto-compilation started working in 4.0.1. I tried do the same with 4.0.2 but no luck (.
