Upgrade removed my preferences

#1 Upgrade removed my preferences

Posted by: publicradio | Date: 01/12/2012 18:27 | IP: IP Logged


I just upgraded to the newest pspad and it removed all my old preferences. I had customized pspad pretty thoroughly and I'm wondering if there's any way to get my old preferences back.

Also, In the file view, all file types show a recycling bin icon. Before the upgrade, all file types were showing an unknown file format icon. This was part of why I upgraded in the first place.

Is there anything I can do to resolve these two issues?

Problem 1.
Please ensure that you don't install PSPad as portable. No application has rights to write into Program files folder.
You have 2 ways how to fix it:
1. Run PSPad installer again and uncheck option "Portable application" during setup.
2. Run PSPad as administrator (use right mouse) to elevate PSpad rights, go to Program settings / System and check multiuser environment

Your previous setting will be preserverd.

Problem 2.
send me screenshot please. I am sure there is no recycle bin icon, but blank page icon.
Go to program settings / Program 1 and check use system icon in file explorer.
Point 2) wont be necessary, cause point 1 will fix your problems include point 2.
