You're quite right - the Bandmaster config file is there in the
compatibility files area - that would explain why my attempts at
manually updating were failing - till I set the program to run with
administrative rights. As separately reported, the same bug seems to
exist in 1.41 under XP, so it cannot be a Vista problem - sure Alex
will fix it soon - he is usually responsive...
