V745 and settings reinitialized?

#1 Post by kevmeist » 28.04.2017, 11:12

I have just downloaded V745 and installed on 3 PCs (two are Win10 and one is Win7). On the Win7 PC, all of my settings vanished (maybe back to a default setting on the install?).

The Win10 PCs did NOT do this.

I think I remember this happening on V742 also (but not 100% sure).

I'm glad that I take backups of the settings once per month!

If you're using "Following folder" for setting files, then you need to skip the file fcStart.ini when copying from the new zip installation. Your old settings should be in the correct folder.

Here is the topic for this issue:

I have LT panel and RT panel set to %FcSrcDrive% in the Start/TEMP folder tab for Start program on my Win7 PC that showed this problem. But have the same settings on both Win10 PCs that didn't reset my settings to something else when installing the V745 software.

Why would an installation program reset a user's settings when installing a new version?

Shouldn't the user be asked if he wants to keep his settings when installing?

As I said, I backup my FC settings once per month and just restored them on the Win7 PC, but didn't have to on the Win10 PCs.
