Please post; why bug busy Malc for the same problem twice?Lost Sheep wrote:Just had an email from Malc which has fixed my problem.
I hadn't realised that there were recovery files in a (hidden on my system) folder under user/AppData.
It also seems my registry window position settings were corrupted which were fixed by deleting the relevant key.
Further details available from Malc if you get a similar problem. I haven't provided full details of the registry fix as I don't think this a place to go if you aren't too confident of what you are doing.
Then second issue relates to the default window position (which is why it's showing in task manager but not on the screen). It's possible that the window size and position settings have somehow got corrupted. To resolve this you could try deleting the setting for this in the registry and this will force the software to reset the position when you next launch.
To do this:
1. Click the Windows Start button, type RegEdit in the search box and press return (click Yes on the security dialog)
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Outsim\SynthMaker
3. In the list to the right find "Window Position"
4. Right-click on the Window Position key and select Delete
5. Now close regedit and run SM again
If this doesn't work then you could try deleting the whole SynthMaker group in regedit and then restart SM. Note that this will reset your SM preferences back to defaults though.
