Hey, Hans!

I have no idea what's going on.
Please send me 2 different options.xml files from these locations
C:\Documents and Settings\[your user name]\Application Data\YoWindow
C:\Program Files\YoWindow\userData

These data will help me to diagnose the problem.

Does YoWindow allow you to add more than 2 locations?
Can you repeat this error by adding a couple locations and then restarting YoWindow?

Sorry about the missing locations.

Thank you!

Hey, Pasha,

What I remember is that I installed the latest version with no problems at all, all the locations I had defined were there. I then had to reboot my PC (for other unrelated reasons) and the next time I started YoWindow, all locations except my home location were gone.

I have tested closing and restarting YoWindow, as well as rebooting Windows and then restarting YoWindow, and every time the program remember its latest settings and locations.

I believe you changed the location of the program settings recently (build 154 was it?) so I'm guessing this is probably related to that part of the code (I had the same issue with build 154 as you may remember).

Sending you the options files separately.

Thanks,
Hans

Thanks!
So now the problem is not repeatable?
Correct?

I have taken a look at the options files.
Tried to repeat your case on my PC.
I had no luck.
The locations are kept intact.

I would put this error aside.
This is an elusive migration problem that should not take much impact on the real users.
Remember this is still Beta.

Yes, I agree, it's probably a transitional thing that we won't see again.

I'll get back to you if it happens again.

Thanks,
Hans
