Default Re: ac3dprefs8.txt

Sorry I don't understand the problem. The file is automatically written when AC3D quits. Are you saying that it's failing to write it or that it is corrupt?

I can see problems with the file you show. What is it you are trying to do?

Default Re: ac3dprefs8.txt

NB: "the cause of the PRG display and discontinuation"
For some unknown reason, the file "ac3dprefs8.txt" c is deleted from the user directories.
After three successive installs, the file is not set up.
I had to create the file with Notepad++ with the commands from the first post.
Installing the file, the prg is back up and running
