It could be a windows problem, but this is a fresh build, it was installed only a month ago.

Any ideas? I'm a tech consultant and systems auditor professionally for 18 years, and an amateur programmer, so feel free to get as technical as you like.

Thanks in advance.

The problem might be that you have been switching screen resolutions. the tool remembers the window position in absolute coordinates. If the screen resolution was reduced since last use, it might have ended up "outside" of your screen.

- If location and size stored in config.ini would place window outside the screen, it is repositioned to fit within the primary screen desktop.

I also found an additional bug in the auto-update system, immediately after 2.9.5 was released, so here comes:


- Fixed a bug where the auto-update system would display a wrong download version number.


P.S.: Please tell me if this causes any issues with multi-monitor setups (because I can't test that on my one-monitor machine).
Hope this helps
