Error When exitting Code::Block
« on: January 07, 2011, 11:17:15 pm »
I recently installed Code::Blocks 10.05Mingw/gcc included on Windows 7 64bit home premium

Every time i close C::B i get a warning box saying

Layout changed

The persepective 'Code::Blocks defaults' has changed. Do you want to save it? Y/N?

no matter what option i pick i get warning box saying Could not save config fil... (rest cut off cant enlarge box)

This happens when I exit after doing nothing or creating a project in C++.  My projects save and work when i reopen them
but i would rather not have to click some error box everytime i close the C::B


Cpu is i7 920 with home premium 64
C::B is installed in x86 file

Weired. But you can try to delete the current layout (which means a reset) and see if the message goes away.

where would i "find" the default layout? it seems like the cpu wont allow code:block to save the normal default layout of the the program itself.  due to the fact that even if i just open c::b and then file quit the program it comes up with this error I initally had the full install then i unistalled ccleaner'd the reg and the program left overs and fresh install just went back to same error.

You can forget about ccleaner - C::B does not store anything in the registry. The configuration file of Code::Blocks is called default.conf (there can be many and this is the default one, obviously). It's in your application data folder under a sub-folder called "CodeBlocks" usually. Delete this file and Code::Blocks will create it from scratch.
