I'm getting an intermittent issue when I boot my PC AutoDialogs has lost all of its settings.

To work around this I'm having to backup ad.dat and restore it when this "error" occurs have you any ideas on what may be causing this.

I'm using AutoDialogs 2.7 .184 Service Release 1 & Windows 7 Ultimate.

Can you try to erase this folder with AutoDialogs settings and reboot the computer. Start AutoDialogs and quit it. Then replace the newly created ad.dat file with the backup one? Would this fix the issue?

Best regards,

Thanks, I've tried that (a few days ago now) and the settings haven’t yet been lost, I'll monitor the situation and let you know if it occurs again.

My settings were lost again this morning (I restored them from a backup of ad.dat).

All folders were lost or just most recent changes?

Hi Oleg

All of the folders were lost. (The treeview just had the root AutoDialogs node)

This is still an issue for me and happens at least once every 2 weeks.

I made changes to the code that saves the configuration. Can you please update AD.exe file to this version:


Please let me know if this happens again.

Thank you!

Thanks for the response!

I've applied the file and I'll let you know how I get on.

Sorry for the delay in responding.
I've been running this AutoDialogs 2.7.186 SR 2 for quite a while now and haven't had any re-occurrence of the issue.
