Suddenly can't open CodeBlocks
« on: November 25, 2020, 12:52:03 pm »
I'm using CodeBlocks for a couple of month now, and I've just finshed a C program, put my laptop on sleep mode with the CodeBlocks open (but no project running) and when i got back the CodeBlocks didn't show up. I can see it on the task bar but nothing show up when I click it.

I tried restarting my computer, reinstalling CodeBlocks, with no changes.

Can it be due to any memory leak?

This is what shows up when i click ctrl+alt+tab

And this is the Task Manager



Didn't found anything on the web excpet this one

You could try to reset the config. Search your AppData for a CodeBlocks folder and there is a default.conf file. You could backup and delete the whole folder - this would reset your settings.

I've changed the file name and it worked,
Thank you!
