After reboot/login
« on: September 23, 2014, 05:55:03 AM »
Hi,

I seem to be having an issue with Launchbar where everytime I log off or restart my PC I have to point the program to the .mcf file and then resize the dock again.

Is there a way to set it so it always opens the file by default or remembers the dock size?


Thanks,
Dave

It should be remembering.. Can you try this, get the file loaded and dock sized the way you want, then exit the program manually, and restart it.
If it remembers it when you launch the program again, it should remember it on computer restart after that.
Also, please make sure you are using the latest version.

Thanks for the reply. I get an 'error saving config file' when closing it.

Yep latest version. It might be worth mentioning that I am using on a work PC so there may be some light restrictions (although I do have admin rights). Is there anything in particuar that it needs other than read/write of file system and registry?

It's clearly having trouble saving where it's trying to save, and that explains your problems.
What you could do is edit the ConfigDir.ini file in the LaunchBarCommander installed program files directory, and change where it saves its settings to someplace where it has write access.

Ah yes, I changed the path to a local one.

I have my 'my documents' folder redirected to a UNC path, which may have been the issue. But I've moved it to a folder on C: and it is working perfectly.

Thank you for your help.
