I was finally able to reproduce the behavior you described, but not through the Visual Designer, I edited the rlinq file manually. Code generation in the root of the project could happen in one of the following scenarios:
- 1. It could happen if you first choose a project folder, then delete it, thus invalidating the <OutputPath>.
- 2. It could also happen if you manually edit the <OutputPath> and set it to a non-existent location, or delete it. You mentioned that you manually edited the .rlinq file, so maybe this is the case.
In both cases you have to choose the "Project Folder" again, so the .rlinq file can be regenerated correctly.
It would be great if you could share with us how exactly you got to this problem with the visual designer.
As for the missing <OutputMode/> tag, the reason behind this is that the "Project Folder" option is actually the default value of <OutputMode/>.
