I'm using boa-constructor 0.4.0. During first 5 days,
there was no problem. But One day suddenly a
following error occured. So I can't start Boa.
Can you give me any solution.

Thank you.

    I could duplicate this by removing the section splash from
    C:\.boa-constructor\Explorer.msw.cfg.

    Certainly a bug
    A solution: I would suggest adding to the Explorer.msw.cfg
    file (mine looks like) :

    (Save the old cfg before)

    [plug-ins.home]

    [plug-ins.extra]
    -----insert here, if it is missing
    [splash]
    modulecount = 561

    Hi,
    I have also such a problem, solved (only for us als user!)

    you should check the login-directory and find there is a
    subdirectory named .boa-constructor. Now rename the subdir
    to a different name and try again. It works again at my PC. If
    you need your preferences you should do it manually!

    Good luck!

    Similar problem for me (WinXP): the file "Explorer.msw.cfg"
    in "\Documents and Settings\<your-username>\.boa-
    constructor" was empty. Renaming this directory, BOA has
    restarted and re-created that directory with a
    right "Explorer.msw.cfg" file.
    A "good" copy of the file can be found also in BOA
    installation directory (in its sub-directory "\Config").

    I'm still learning Python, but it wouldn't be difficult to modify
    Boa.py to check if "Explorer.msw.cfg" is empty and then
    copy it from BOA Config directory.
