I was using Mirage, LW, Photoshop and VT very heavily the other day and had a couple of crashes. On one of them VT came up missing my setups, hotkeys and the preferences list was all scrambled and missing entries.

Anybody ever have something like this happen?

I deleted (renamed) the User Config and Preferences Script for my login (C:\VT3\Skins\Preferences folder) and new ones were created.

Yes, I had that happen on one of my development systems. We tend to break things when messing with the TScript so I didn't worry about it. Had to reformat the drive anyway.

But yes resetting the user prefs and configs should fix that problem.

Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone...

Thanks Jef.

Weird thing is other setting and prefs for several programs also seem to have been reset. Seems like my login application data folder and others things got wiped out. Must have been a system hiccup...

That actually makes total since to me also. I have scrambled my Xp configuration a couple time because I get impatient when it is shutting down.... OOps Ouch, Not again! were some of the PG words heird around here just last week.
Patience is Definitely A Virtue!!
