Upgrade to last version and preferences

I just upgrade to the last version (from 5.0.6.2 to 5.0.7.2).
The database is loading correctly but all the preferences are not kept (windows size, column displayed, rename option, search option, ...)

Hi, to keep the preferences you need to uninstall the previous version and install the new version to the same folder

Are the preferences saved when you just restart the program?

Upgraded from 5.0.8.2 to 5.0.9.2 and continu to lost my preferences.
I checked, when I uninstall the application all the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Alfa.NetSoft\Alfa eBooks Manager 5 is removed, so if the preferences are saved in this directory it's normal to not keep the parameters.

Could you please correct this for the next version.

Hi Gege34,
The preferences are stored in:
c:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Alfa.NetSoft\Alfa Ebooks Manager\
and they are not removed when uninstalling the program. So far we can't catch this bug and had no reports from other users. We'll keep watching this issue
