    Hey Steven,

    I just installed SvsP on a fresh Windows 7 install.

    SvsP is not remembering databases I opened previously.

    Any ideas on things I can check to make this work? It worked fine before I did a clean install. So I am guessing it is something that I can adjust W7 to allow for.

    Yes, on windows the options/config files are not copied over. :(

    You'll have to find them in your old installation (in bin/config/) and copy them over.

    Hey Steve. It just occurred to me that I installed the software on WIndows 7 before, for the first time, and didn't have this problem. So I guess I'm not sure what you mean about the config files not copying over.

    thanks.

    I just mean, our windows' installer does not attempt to keep any of the users old settings. Sorry, but all three of Scid's main devs (~ Shane and Pascal) have been mainly Linux people.

    Anyway - thanks Gorgonian and Ed for your online stuff. I finally got around to linking to your pages in the program and online doco.

    BTW, i think the spelling and ratings resources are now unmaintained :(

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/scid/files/Player%20Data/Latest%20data/

    (it was previously here http://linweb.ris.at/~nagl/)

    Perhaps someone could contact Franz, and/or take it over themselves ? 

    Franz was last at: franz.nagl(.nospam) at ris.at

    Thanks. I don't think that is the issue. It seems unable, for some reason, to create a settings file. It was doing so with no problem before.

    Can you think of some reason it might not be saving its settings file?

    The only idea i have is perhaps you have installed it /Program Files ? Where Windows7 does stupid things about mirroring config files transparently.

    The default install directory is "c:/Scid vs PC" or something.  Otherwise it may be some permissions issue.
