Repeated login requests from projucer


#1

Every other time I load Projucer 5 it asks me to log in again. Why? Is Projucer v4 overwriting something? It’s pretty annoying!


#2

Actually it’s more than this - it’s lost all my bloody global paths too… !


#3

Yes, the Projucer has a single common settings file stored on your machine so if you’re using multiple versions the settings will be overwritten.


#4

Mmmm, any suggestions on how to manage this?


#5

Perhaps you could make a local copy of your JUCE 5 settings and switch them out when you are changing versions? Not particularly elegant but it’s the best I can think of…


#6

The way we have JUCE set up here each project has a juce submodule, we build the version of the projucer associated with the project and use that. Not all projects are upgraded at the same nano-second to the latest JUCE. Presumably other people still have some projects on older versions too? Maybe in future the Projucer could write settings in such a way that it doesn’t risk them being overwritten by previous versions of itself.


#7

How about using a different file in future, which is divided into sections based on version, and if the Projucer doesn’t understand the content it leaves it in place ratehr than deleting it :slight_smile:

bump - this is still VERY annoying!
