I've used Word Wrap in Notepad to show everything, but I've highlighted a couple of the slight differences.

Yep, it looks like they changed it from -1 to true along with the description now. I'll update them now. Nice catch.

Thank you Aaron.

Edit:
Changed.

Hello Djinn, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you dragging the library from the hidden C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries location? It will not work opened from any other location.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

It should have never worked if dragged directly from computer. The only thing I can think of is that the two windows do look similiar, and that you may have just thought it was the computer window the first time.

Iam 100% sure that I drag it because i dident even know i should go to the directory and choose show hide files. Thats odd then.
