Title: Help!
Post by: doublygood on June 23, 2003, 07:55:13 AM
Hiya!

Love your program, downloaded it and was using it with no problems for a week, but now, whenever I try to open it, it minimizes  right away.  Clicking on the icon in the taskbar does nothing, it just seems to be constantly minimized.  I tried reinstalling, no luck.  I'm using Win XP, but it *was* working for some time...what can I do if anything to remedy this?


Cheers!

Yeah, I uninstalled and re-installed, exactly the same problem, but this time there was no period when it worked at all...

There is probably a problem with saved settings. Turn off EvilLyrics, delete file settings.ini from c:program filesevillyrics (or wherever you installed it) and run the program again. It should work.

Hmmmm...interesting, I don't have a settings.ini file, but a settings.txt. But I deleted that and it worked [:)] thank you!

This bug has occured on my XP machine too.

Deleting "settings.txt" solved the problem for me as well.

I had the same problem with Evil Lyrics being minimized constantly.  I removed the program files/evil lyrics/settings.txt file and that fixed the problem.  I am running W2K PRO.  I have no idea what triggers it.  Everything usually runs fine for a couple or three days...then zap.

The problem is that window is moved out of the screen (i have no idea how can this happen). As window position is saved in settings file, it opens taht way everytime you run it. I'll fix it in next version.
