SC 4 update minor problem
« on: March 26, 2013, 12:45:49 PM »
Not a big deal but thought I should let you know:
the update to version 4 cleared all my shortcuts/hotkey actions.

EDIT/ forgot to say - I updated from a beta install from only a couple of days ago

Well that's beyond depressing -- that shouldn't even be possible.

Sent you an email with details, ini file and screenshots.
Going to try messing around now with restarting and reinstalling as you suggested.

Somehow your ScreenshotCaptor.ini file got messed up -- quite possibly a bug in an older beta that kicked in when you ran the new installed and it killed the running instance of the older beta.

I've uploaded a new version of 4.0 that has an additional protection against the possibility of corruption occurring if it crashes while saving settings; if you downloaded 4.0 earlier than 2:30pm central (forum) time, you might want to re-download.

well the panic is/was warranted.. i just hope the cause of the panic was a faulty older beta which did not save it's settings properly when you ran the upgrade.  there's a good chance of that since some of the last betas had a flaw in saving settings on reboot or upgrade.  if i'm right then that will at least limit the # of people who could potentially be hit by this to a very small number.

Going fine now...

I kept downloading SC in the last while, and then I'd look at the thread before going to install and see it was updated again ;D
This was an update from yesterday I think, but also one that was relatively quickly replaced by another IIRC.
(Unfortunately I didnt keep a record.)
