Quote from: Aurum on August 29, 2018, 07:52:13 PMI read the version history and I don't know what you're talking about here. Maybe you're saying the edit feature was added to Win version but yet to be added to Linux??? I could try Linux to Linux and see if that works.
Quote from: Aurum on September 03, 2018, 12:01:55 AMYou have a major problem with this edit app_config.xml feature. It alters the code and adds killer lines.So now I understand why I never get any Milkyway WUs. Great, I now have to audit about 400 app_config.xml files one by one to assure they are correct.
