Re: Amaya 8.8 crashes upon start

Hi Stéphane,

Thanks for your reply.

I just solved it!
Well, not really me.

After some un- and re-installations, system boots, and a prayer to the Windows god Bill Gates, Amaya 8 now works fine again.

After a few decenniums of Windows usage, you learn to keep trying and hope for the best (bloody WinOSs, they have a life of their own, it seems).

The directory you mentioned, was not deleted after uninstalling. So, I removed it myself.
(C:\Documents and settings\USER\amaya\)

Thanks for mentioning the thot.rc file.
(It seems to be like the ini-files, storing the settings for the app.)

Also, version 8.8 has a smaller interface, better glyph (font) display and seems faster and more stable than AmayaWX.
