Reflector 7 Beta1 can't be closed

Postby wickyhu » Tue Jan 11, 2011 7:21 am


I just downloaded Reflector 7 beta1.
It can't be closed after started.

Always show error report:
Could not find a part of the path "C:\\Users\\wicky\\AppData\\Local\\Red Gate\\.Net Reflector 7\\PersistedTabs.xml.

And it will keep opened no matter I choose Send or Don't Send.
My OS is Win7 x64.

Sorry, but you've run across a bug in the tab position saving code, which fails if the "C:\\Users\\wicky\\AppData\\Local\\Red Gate\\.Net Reflector 7" directory doesn't exist.

You can turn off the tab saving by going to


and un-checking the "save tabs when I close Reflector". Once you've closed down Reflector once, the directory will have been created in order to store the configuration information. At that point you could check the option again.

Hi there,

Thanks for reporting this. I've just put out a new build with a fix for this, which is available from, or via Help > Check For Updates on the Reflector menu bar.

Thanks again!
