Hey. I’ve been using Blender for a long time, but I recently got a new laptop, so I naturally wanted to install it on there. So anyway, I installed it and copied all my files over from my other comp. I loaded it up, and (thankfully) since I copied my files, it used my other computer’s defaults. I needed to update some of the preferences for the laptop, though, so I did that, and hit Ctrl-U to save defaults.
Then… this was really weird… an error popped up that said “Unable to delete file” and I had to click it like (literally) 100 times before it would go away. So, I figured that “unable to delete file” meant that it couldn’t delete .B.blend, so I deleted it.
I guess that must have been a stupid move, because after I did that, I tried running Blender, and it loaded about half of my default scene. Let me elaborate on that: The 3D view was unchanged, but the “rounded” theme that I normally use was deleted, and all of my preferences were reset. :spin:
Yeah, so obviously, this kinda weirded me out. Since then, I tried a bunch of different things… I’ve uninstalled and reintalled four or five times, I’ve tried re-copying .B.blend from my other comp, I’ve tried reinstalling and then immediately setting user defaults… nothing. It keeps loading the same “halfway default” scene. Every once in a while, the “unable to delete file” message would pop up again, one time it would pop up every time I moved an object.
So… now what? The only thing I can think of is the fact that I don’t think I restarted in between uninstalls. If perhaps there is a hidden system file somewhere that doesn’t get fully uninstalled until you restart, then I may have missed it. Otherwise, I’ve got nothing.
BTW, My OS is Vista, if that matters.
