[Fixed] LibreCAD leaves Qt filedialog

I run LibreCAD on Win 7 and opened a file. This causes the QT filesave part to appear in the registry which isnt backed up/deleted/taken care of:

----------------------------------
Keys added:
----------------------------------
HKCU\Software\Trolltech
HKCU\Software\Trolltech\OrganizationDefaults
HKCU\Software\Trolltech\OrganizationDefaults\Qt

----------------------------------
Values added:
----------------------------------
HKCU\Software\Trolltech\OrganizationDefaults\Qt\filedialog:  40 00 42 00 79 00 74 00 65 00 41 00 72 00 72 00 61 00 79 00 28 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 BE 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 1E 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 FF 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 72 00 00 00 00 00 0E 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 05 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 05 00 66 00 69 00 6C 00 65 00 3A 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 17 00 66 00 69 00 6C 00 65 00 3A 00 2F 00 2F 00 2F 00 43 00 3A 00 2F 00 55 00 73 00 65 00 72 00 73 00 2F 00 73 00 6B 00 75 00 65 00 68 00 6C 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 18 00 00 00 44 00 00 00 3A 00 00 00 5C 00 00 00 44 00 00 00 6F 00 00 00 63 00 00 00 75 00 00 00 6D 00 00 00 65 00 00 00 6E 00 00 00 74 00 00 00 73 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 18 00 00 00 44 00 00 00 3A 00 00 00 2F 00 00 00 44 00 00 00 6F 00 00 00 63 00 00 00 75 00 00 00 6D 00 00 00 65 00 00 00 6E 00

EDIT:

As I fix I added

[RegistryKeys]
-=HKCU\Software\Trolltech\OrganizationDefaults\Qt

to a QT app I am working on. This works, but I hope I am not harming other QT apps with this rather wide approach of deleting the whole key.

EDIT2:
I regshotted my fix and it restores pre-existing keys without issue so it should be safe.

I know

Looks like they switched to a newer version of QT.

youre welcome

Testing apps that are already released for changes such as this one is a tedious business I gave up some time ago. Maybe it would be good to have some coordinated effort of some devs to do this but that didnt work with Dev Tests so it will probably not work here either.

It was my fault

As I did it on my Win Hate machine which had it installed and not the clean Win 7 machine got a little lazy and did not run the regshot

RegistryValueBackupDelete

Doing that whole key will break pretty much everything stored by any Qt apps during execution. A better option is to use RegistryValueBackupDelete just on the filedialog value. It would still be possible for two apps to collide on it, but it decreases the collision scope significantly. We'll need to handle the Qt key cleanup, but the two parent keys (rganizationDefaults and Trolltech) are handled by PAL's Qt handling which is already configured. So, we need to add:

[RegistryValueBackupDelete]
1=HKCU\Software\Trolltech\OrganizationDefaults\Qt\filedialog

[RegistryCleanupIfEmpty]
1=HKCU\Software\Trolltech\OrganizationDefaults\Qt

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

Ah!

Thats what that section is for. I readit 3 times but couldnt figure out what it was useful for.

Besides, I realised the possible downsides of my proposal but couldnt find a way to get a better result. Thanks John for the help.

Fixed

This is fixed in LibreCAD Portable 1.0.4 Rev 2.

Simeon et al, be sure to look at my updated launcher code above for your own apps.

[RegistryCleanupIfEmpty]

In Johns update, there is this part:

[RegistryCleanupIfEmpty]
1=HKCU\Software\Trolltech\OrganizationDefaults\Qt

Shouldnt this include this too:

2=HKCU\Software\Trolltech\OrganizationDefaults
3=HKCU\Software\Trolltech
