Corrupted application settings

IssueSimplebim saves settings into various files in the user’s profile folder. Like with any files, these settings files can get corrupted for a number of reasons. If the happens you may get an error message like:

Access to the path ‘C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Datacubist\Simplebim\9\User.config’ is denied
SolutionThe solution is to delete the user settings file and Simplebim will automatically create a new file. The root file for the settings is User.config and deleting this file will reset all user settings.

The default folder for user settings is: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Datacubist\Simplebim\9

If you want to preserve settings you can copy all .config files from the settings folder and any of its sub folders to another location. When the settings have been reset you can then copy files back to restore your settings in those files.
