SpaceBlock will not start

Jun 5, 2008 at 6:37 AM
Everything was running fine a week ago. Only change to the system since last use has been an installation of the VS2K8 Isolated Shell. Also, the program will not uninstall thru the cpl add/remove.

Any Suggestions?

Thank's in advance for any help!

Hmm - it sounds like your ClickOnce cache was corrupted somehow by the shell install. 

If uninstalling/reinstalling does not work, you can always delete the ClickOnce store and get back to clean state. To delete the ClickOnce store delete the folder "%userprofile%\Local Settings\Apps".   Note that this will remove all ClickOnce apps on your system.  You should then be able to relaunch spaceblock from the homepage.

I'll try installing the VS2008 shell and see if I can reproduce this.

Hope that helps,

John;

Deleting "%userprofile%\Local Settings\Apps" did the trick. SpaceBlock is up and running smoothly. Thanks for the help!
