Help-Vista losing prog settings after exit RRS feed

  • Question

  • Vista is losing settings on some programs upon exit.( incl dc++ (and its clones) and some games(myst V more recently) )
    Dc++ for example: I open it  for the first time and adjust all the settings (ips hubs shares etc).when i restart the program all settings are gone just like when i ran it for the first time.This happens on two vista ultimate pc's.Run as admin or comp mode give no results.Windows firewall , defender on or off makes no change.This gets very frustrating as cant use the progrs at all.
    I suspect its got smthing to do with security policies(apps not permitted to write to the registry?)
    Any solutions ideas?

  • I have a similar version with Windows Vista 32 bit Ultimate. And as far as i've seen, it's happening only with 3 softphones: X-lite, eye-Beam and zoiper. They all seem to forget my sip account a few days after working perfectly each and every day. If i find something, i'll let you know. In your case maybe it's something related to UAC (user account control).

    Try disabling it: run > msconfig > disable UAC, restart.
