Everytime I open MC, all the alias/trigger/macro tables fold up. Thats the best I can explain it.

Here's a screenshot:

Its annoying. I have to drag the bars open again everytime. Why is this happening?

That's odd. It stores the width of the columns in the Registry (and also their positions, you can drag them into a different order).

Sounds like it is getting corrupted somehow. Try uninstalling MUSHclient (which will clear out the entries in the Registry) and re-installing.

I reinstalled it at the time you told me to, and I fixed it. But now its doing the same thing, except its only one worlds aliases columns. I never touch the positions. Any idea why it keeps doing this? The world happens to be my own MUD, which I keep open nearly 24/7.

I find my computer fairly stable compared to ones I've used in the past. I'm using Windows XP, but not SP2. This happens to be the only world in the Startup list.

First I would use RegEdit to see if, after closing MUSHclient, it has saved the wrong data (eg. they are all zero or something).

Then I would try maybe importing the above into the Registry to see if it corrects it. eg. save between the lines as test.reg or similar, and then double-clicking it to import it.

Argh, it's happening again. I just tried an update too, it didn't fix it. "Macro List Col 0 Order" is 0. But that's it, and the Macro section is the part where the width is small. Is there anyway to reset this without reinstalling it each time?

Can't really explain that. Check out the current values in RegEdit. I don't think reinstalling will achieve anything.

It's not a solution, but you can click in the window and press Ctrl-+ (keypad plus) and the bars will open to their required length automatically. Beats dragging them...

Hmm, come to think of it, my toolbars sometimes forget where they're supposed to be. But definitely not every load.

Some kind of problem reading the registry. That's Windows for you.

Yep. As I argued before Nick. If you want something to work reliably under Windows, don't store the information in the registry. I don't care what MS says about how great it is... lol

I was planning to get rid of the registry entries, but the question is where does this "configuration file" go? Put its location in the Registry? A bit of a chicken and egg problem.

Wouldnt it make sense to just check default locations in succession? IE the 'start in' folder (provided by a shortcut), world folder, executable directory.

Just have some set order of precidence (just like dlls).

Most programs that used ini file looked first in the location it started from. This though is a potential nightmare, since Windows isn't too smart about setting the shortcuts 'start' location to the same as the executable. It can end up being dumped where the shortcut is, the desktop or damn near anyplace else. There is code to check either the 'real' location starts from or the 'assumed' location (as returned by a badly configured link). The problem is most people end up using the later. It should be possible to set a fixed location. Besides, even if you had to store that in the registry the first time you install, that is one things that can go wrong, not 50 simultaniously, as things are now. That has to be an improvement.

Programs used ini files for years before the registry was created and you can still run most of them even under XP, so the means to do it is still there and likely will still be in later versions of Windows. Its just finding the 'right' code to get the real executable location that is an issue.

That shouldn't be too hard. Just look at the command line - isn't the first argument there the exact filename of the executable being run?
