Terminals crashes windows 7 Beta 1

Terminals opens and crashes with an error "stopped working"  Could this be due to the version of .net framework?

I'm assuming Windows 7 ships with at least the latest SP of v3.5?  If not, be sure it install the Redist...

1.7b does work ok on Win7, but not 1.7c or 1.7d. No idea what the difference is.

I have the latest build of .net.  Version 1.7b does work as you suggested Szurgot.  I will keep using this until the issue is fixed.
Thanks for the feedback

Ok, I handled that issues globally in the app now.  Next release should include a fix for this (1.7e).  If your anxious and want to try it out faster than my normal builds let me know and I will get one out to you ASAP (I would love to get someone to give Terminals a once over in the Windows 7 environment).

Hi Rob

I would be happy to test it for you.  Can you send me a new build please.

I have uploaded a Windows 7 patch to the release.

I've been using the Win7 version for a few days now, and it works well. Ironically, I turned off the shortcut bar (which is what was causing the problem, I think) because it's too cluttered. :)

I really need to do something about the shortcut bar.  I wonder if anyone actually uses it...
Jan 12, 2009 at 9:10 PM
I personally never use the shorcut bar.

I'd love to use the shortcut bar (if I were able to edit it and have it keep my settings)  I've just started playing with Terminals and this would give me more of a "one stop shopping" work console. So far I've found that I lose my changes on next launch, the terminal.config fiels appears to regenerate itself with original settings for shortcuts...maybe I'm missing something.?
