Error saving configuration file on exit

Postby astanton » Tue Jan 18, 2011 8:10 pm

Upon exit, reflector now displays a message box "Error saving configuration file: Object reference not set to instance of object."

This started happening at least a month ago, when I updated to the latest version (

It has something to do with the fact that the cfg file is read only, but that is necessary for me so that I can add/change assemblies but still have the same starting point if I reopen reflector.

Is there any way to disable this error report, or disable the saving?

Yeah, it looks like you're right - if you remove the readonly flag on the cfg file that will go away (otherwise you'll get that error everytime you close).

Might be able to write an addin that would keep a sort of session and either throw it away or save it on close instead of the always saving.
