Not Saving Config Settings

Question

All of a sudden, BYEOS does NOT save my config settings. I set them and save but every time I open BYEOS it always goes back to default settings. And yes, when they ask for what Canon camera, I do check off "remember my selection..."

This has been discussed here several times.

 

Looks like Windows has messed up (or altered) your security settings.

 

Start BYE with admin privileges and try again.

 

Keep us posted.

Running as Admin worked. I then went back and turned BYEOS 2 times and all settings saved. I then tried running as normal (even though I have Admin Rights) and it didn't save the. Immediately went back as Admin and all settings were good.

Will do. Thanks Guy - I did try and search for this, here, before posting but didn't seem to find anything.

Your PC's security profile probably changed due to a recent Windows update.

 

Windows update working for  :(

I'll check but I turned off updates about a month ago due to everyone complaining about updates interrupting sessions.

Sorry to revive this old thread, but when running in admin mode to have the settings “stick” I’m having issues with dithering via ASCOM. EQMod is already running but when I connect the scope for dithering, BYE triggers another instance of EQMod, instead of using the instance that’s already running and can’t get “a port” and thus no dithering. When *not* running in admin, it uses the instance that’s already there. Any advice?

Running in admin mode causes a cascade of other issues. The best solution is to NOT run in admin mode.

We need to help you solve your original issue about saving BYE's settings. I suggest 1) upgrade to BYE 3.1.17 and 2) re-install BYE to a different folder.

Installing to a different folder has helped others with the same issue.
