I'm running Passwordsafe from Dropbox, installed using the option to not use
When I want to close Passwordsafe on Windows XP I can hit Escape (with the
correct option configured) or the button on the top-right. However in 64 bit
Windows 7 both of those option merely lock and minimize the application. In
order to actually close the program I have to ALT-F4, or go through the File
menu. How can I correct this behavior?
Because it's run out of Dropbox and is not using the registry it's running the
exact same executable on both laptops, should be reading the same
configuration settings, and is loading the same database file so I don't see
why it does what I expect on my XP laptop but not my Win7 laptop.
Are you using the '-u' and '-h' command line switches?
the XP %COMPUTERNAME% exactly the same as the Win7 %COMPUTERNAME%
the XP %USERNAME% exactly the same as the Win7 %USERNAME% ?
I'm using no commandline switches.
The usernames are the same, but the computer names are different.
I did confirm that the 'Escape key closes application' option is checked on
both laptops. I only had to set it on one of them.
Look at Manage >Options | System
Put icon in System Tray
On your XP that option is probably not selected, but on your Win7 it probably
Review the help file regarding configuration which are stored based upon both
%COMPUTERNAME% and %USERNAME%.
Yes, that corrects it. Thank you very much.
I didn't know that configurations were stored by host and username. I naively
assumed that only one set of configurations were kept. Is there a way to
override or default that so that any machine I log into with the same username
will have the same configurations for non-security related settings?
See in Help file Command Line Arguments -u username and -h hostname
Understood, thanks again :)
