    I just updated to 1.1.2 on win32 and all my account info is gone. If I remember correctly this has happened before on past upgrades more than once, but a reboot ususally fixed it. This time, however, nothing seems to get my account info back. What might have happened? Where is that info stored?

      Forgot to mention "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data" doesn't seem to contain any gaim folders or files.

      If you were using something older than 1.1.0 previously and had the HOME environment variable set, you will need to set the GAIMHOME environment variable to have the same behavior.

      See http://gaim.sf.net/win32 for more information.

      Whew!  I had the same problem and was a wee bit worried, but the GAIMHOME did the trick!

      Thanks!

      Setting GAIMHOME solved my problem.

      thanx,
