[Fixed] VLCPortable 0.9.4 doesn't remember windows position

Like the title says, version 0.9.4 doesn't remember the windows position (Version 0.8.6 does). But if you run vlc 0.9.4 directly from the App\vlc folder it does remember it. I searched in the VLC forums, and it seems that now the window position is stored in the vlc-qt-interface.ini file in $APPDATA\vlc\ folder. So I think there is a bug in VLCPortable.nsi in the line 237:

where is :

CopyFiles /SILENT `$SETTINGSDIRECTORY\vlc-qt-interface.ini` `$APPDATA\vlc-qt-interface.ini`

I think it sould be:

CopyFiles /SILENT `$SETTINGSDIRECTORY\vlc-qt-interface.ini` `$APPDATA\vlc\vlc-qt-interface.ini`

since vlc-qt-interface.ini has to be in $APPDATA\vlc\

(If this is the problem, line 245 also needs to be corrected)

bugs

Not sure if it's even worth to try it out since it has many bugs on Windows. I am still with old 0.8.6.

Confirmed

I've confirmed this and added it to the list of bugs fixed in the next release. It's not big enough to warrant a revision, though.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Nope

It wasn't in the proper tracker (sorry bout that), so it will have to wait for the next release. It is in the proper tracker now. Still not worth a re-release as most folks are switching resolutions as they switch PCs so window position changes anyway.
