Edit : This does *not* apply to version 0.9z-5 and higher !


I put this in a separate topic, so it will be more easy to find it back later (for me, or for you).

Things can go wrong (really proven 1 time until so far) in the "config file" Windows maintains for any program. XXHighEnd included.
It may be needed to delete that config file in order to even be able to restart the program.

How to find the location of the config file ?

First you must enable (have enabled) "Show hidden folders and files". For that :
Start Explorer, go to Organize Files - Folder and Search options - Tab View (or similar).
You should end up in the DeleteConfig01 picture below, and the entry Show Hidden Files and Folders.
When this is done, close Explorer and restart it.

In Explorer, find the entries as shown in DeleteConfig02 below.
Note that
- "Gebruikers" is Users in english.
- "Beekman" is my user name. So find yours.
- Phasure is the obvious place to be.

In the Phasure folder several entries may exist, but you can see from the contents which is the actual one you need.
In my case it is the first, because that is the one containing folders with actual dates. You can see that the last change to the configuration has been applied at Januari 21 2009 (yesterday). This happens each time XXHighEnd closes.
Oh, you can also see how many "versions" emerge at my place because each entry is another version.
The latest one will be the one in use.

The picture at the bottom below (DeleteConfig03) shows the contents of such a folder, a user.config file.

Now : Delete the newest folder. In my case this would be 1.0.3306.26880.

At the next startup XXHighEnd (just like after a new install) will ask you whether to restore the latest settings. In this case (hence when you seem to have problems with the configuration stuff, do NOT. So, Load previous settings ? No.
(if you answer yes, the now latest new file gets used).

In case of problems with this, just post in this topic.
