    I installed Nightly Build 1.2.999-101109 on my Vista 32-bit machine and when I try to start it up, in appears in my processes for a split second and then disappears.  No errors are thrown, it just fails to start.

    Hrmm… wonder what I broke last night.  Anything in the error/msg logs?

    Oh… I have a guess… Edit your googsystray.ini file and change the version number from 1.3.0 (if you've been using past nightly builds) to 1.2.9 or something.  There's some changes in there that it's not going to pick up (because your googsystray.ini file is 'newer'), and that'll cause a crash right away.  Using 1.2.999… for nightly builds (since it's a 1.3.0-beta) instead of the next 'real' version number is going to make my life easier, but I forgot it will kinda break folks that were using the previous nightlies.

    I tried completely uninstalling googsystray and reinstalling version 1.2.999.  It doesn't look like I have a googsystray.ini file on my computer anymore.  Or I'm not looking in the right spot… 

    P.S.  This happened on my Vista x64 machine as well.

    You have the same problem with a completely fresh install?  Interesting.

    yep. And I tried installing the stable release and then upgrading to 1.2.999 and got the same thing.
