Live Code crashes on startup

Hello Tore,

On Windows the preferences are stored in:


Here you can find one or two files:

livecode7.rev --> Preferences for LiveCode versions 7, 8 and 9
livecode.rev --> Preferences for LiveCode versions < 7

I suggest:

1. Quit LiveCode
2. Delete/rename both of these files. These files will be created/updated
every time you start/quit LiveCode.
3. Launch LiveCode

Hopefully the problem should be fixed now.
