Error message at startup

    I started to test Winsize2 yesterday and the first impression was great.

    Yesterday I selected "start with windows" in options.

    This morning I started up my PC again and got the following error message:

    Error: The following variable name contains an illegal character: "WinSize2_1920.INI"
    The current thread will exit.
    2244: if ( FileExist( %vWinSize2_INI_OLD% ) <> "" )
    < Ok >

    An Instance of WinSize2 is running (found in task manager), but no icon in system tray and also no reaction on Ctrl-Alt-Y.

    Any suggestions?

    Best regards,

    Hello Heini,

    in the Magrasoft directory
    C:\Documents and Settings\&lt;user>\Application Data\MagraSoft

    file: WinSize2_Root.INI
    set: INIWithScreenSize=0

    Do NOT check in Extras-2:
    Different INIs depending on Screen Width …

    I will fix this in the next revision.

    Thanks for reporting the bug

    Hello Magra,

    thanks for the quick reply. This workaround seems to work.

    Nevertheless it would be appreciated, if the bug can be fixed. The "different INIs depending on screen witdth" is a really helpful feature for users with Notebooks and docking stations! I like this very much …

    Best regards,

    Try the 2.35.03;

    you will have to use the way marked "View all Files" on the summary page of WS2.

    Regards, Magra
