I had always assumed that Vedit copied the information from the old vedit.ini to a new file.
It appears this is not the case, and I noted a number of differences from the vedit.ini included in the download, and the resultant.
(I always install over, and transfer the configuration and keyboard layout.)
Some of the differences are trivial e.g. version number on 1st line
Others affect the interpretation of the file e.g. the following was missing:-
; The following parameters (directories) determine the location of VEDIT's
; files. Each parameter can be the full pathname, or use these options:
; - If no drive is specified, the same drive as the ".exe" executable is used.
; - The syntax "%VAR%" uses the environment variable "VAR" for that portion
; of the pathname.
; VeditFtpDir is the directory used to store files downloaded by ftp.
; The FTP "Connect" combo box holds user entered connection strings (URL's).
; These strings are saved into the section [FTP URL].
; Set "MaxFTP" to the desired maximum number of URL's (0-100) to be
; saved into the [FTP URL] section.
; The FtpHost, FtpUser and FtpPW are assigned to the internal Vedit strings
; FTP_HOST, FTP_USER and FTP_PW and can be viewed via the command "cfs()".
; They are used for default values when constructing URL's.
; FtpPassive is needed for communicating from behind a firewall.
; (This can be overridden in the FTP Connect dialog).
; In the following FTP-related sections, passwords may be entered as
; simple text strings. They will, however, be encrypted when written
; back out.
Far more significantly, some entries were missing:-
I added these entries, and now can use FTP, which previously did not work.
I am currently using:-
VEDIT (32-Bit) Ver. 6.15.1 01/09/06
I could supply copies of the vedit.ini if needed.
