Re: Windoze position won't save.

After the re-install, did you edit the XML to switch to the current development version?  Not that the general version is very far behind, but what does your About box say?

This one has me stumped.

Do your multi-track windows come back where they were when you closed them?  Try the following sequence:

1) Open a multitrack on some station
2) Size and/or move the window around to where you'll remember
3) Close the multi-track window
4) Re-open a multitrack on the same station.

if that works, then try putting the multitrack window where you want your main window to be and close it there.  Then re-open the multitrack and see where it goes now.

One more question.  Is the main window completely on the screen on the right side of your monitor or is it's right edge actually off the screen?

And (ok, two questions) are you using one of those Windows features that maximizes the vertical coverage of a the window or are you actually sizing and moving it to exactly where you want it to be?

1) If you make other configuration changes and close the client, do they show up in the XML?  The easiest one of those to try is change the Configure / General / Comment, close the client, and then see if your updated text is in the XML.  This will verify that APRSIS32 is able to write to the configuration XML file.

The XML file is being written to. Verified with the above suggested move.

2) Are you SURE you have the main window restored and not maximized when you close the client.  Window positions are NOT recorded if you close a maximized main window.

I don't run the program maximized.

3) What version of windows are you running?

W8.1

4) Is it a dual (or multi) monitor system?

Single, in the beloved Aero mode occupying the right side of a 16x9 monitor.

5) What is the callsign-SSID of the instance in question?

KF0ED

6) How are you closing the client?  The Exit menu option?  The X in the upper right corner?  Double-clicking the system menu in the upper left?  Closing from the task bar?  Force closing from Task Manager?

The upper X, usually.

This is a recent issue, Lynn. I've uninstalled the program for a reason or two, to get a clean reinstall.
