    Runs fine when on desktop, crashes when moved to any other folder

    • Ah figured it out, when I first downloaded it I unzipped to desktop and ran the program. When I exited it generated 2 XML files (1 for config, 1 for totals). I then moved the folder to the program files folder and that's when it started crashing.

      After deleting the config file, then running it ran fine without crashing. I don't know what was in the config file that was causing the crash but that was the issue. You can't move the folder the program is stored in without deleting the config file.

    • You must also delete the totals.xml file.

    • Ok, I thought I had it figured it out but after a reboot the same error comes up. This program is sadly effectively useless as it's inconsistent and the only way to fix it is by deleting both XML files, one of which has the total bandwidth usage.

  • download the newest version - this has been fixed.
