View Full Version : Update forces original settings

02-16-2009, 08:04 PM
With update BW8*7d.1, everything is restored to original settings, incl. Screen Layout, Welcome screen, shift hint, etc., and Bible versions are changed/out of sort. I save the latter, so no problem, but anybody else have that happen? Can it be avoided? Under shutdown options, I have "save setup options on exit" and "save checkpoint on exit" checked.

I'm not able to duplicate your problem. Perhaps your .ini file was corrupted. Try going back a set point: File menu/Checkpoints

Thanks, good trick if it happens again . . .

The same thing happened to me in the update. A bit of a pain.

Yes, I am seeing this as well... :confused:

As I posted on another thread, I thought loosing the bw.ini settings might be a one off problem with a particular update. After updating to the 7h.1 version, my settings were wiped out yet again. I notice this because my display settings take a while to set up.

For now, I'm making a copy of the ini file and stuffing it away for safe keeping. My setup is far from "normal" (XP sp3 in VirtualBox), but this seems to be new.
