Hi,

I just installed CF and i get the following error as soon as it is run:

An error has occurred while loading the Settings.
Version string portion was too short or too long.

Any idea how to fix it. Also if I open settings I get the same error message.

P.S: Installed V5 Beta 7.

Thanks

Could you backup your settings (Settings > Options > Export) and attach them here?

Thanks!

If you exit ClipboardFusion, import the attached .reg, then start it up, does the error go away?

Hi,

I opened settings-> options -> restore. It gave one error:

The folder selected for the Database does not exist.
Please select a valid location and try again.

Then it said it restored successfully but every time I press apply it gives the same error above regarding the database.

Went to settings -> clipboard history
and set my Database location to : C:\Users\UWK\AppData\Local\ClipboardFusion

and no longer getting any error at all :) It's working smoothly. Do I have to be wary of this version error for future updates and keep this reg file around?
