I've just applied the 4.0.1 update, and loading up FB for the first time shows the default workspace. I'd made a lot of customisations to where panels were, what SDK's were used, what projects were present in the Package Explorer - all of which are now gone.
Why would an update reset everything back to the state the software was in the first time I ran it? Is there any way for me to restore the settings I had prior to the update?
Sorry that your update experience wasn't smoother.
There were a lot of tests run to cover that sort of scenario, so I'm surprised we didn't catch it prior to release. Before the update, were you using the default workspace name/location, or had you switched to an alternate workspace name?
If you were using a custom workspace name, then the solution to recovering your preferences would be to switch back to that alternate workspace again. A lot of the preferences are stored in the workspace, so if the updater switched you back to the default workspace name, that could explain the differences (I hope).
Thanks for the response. I did look in the Workspaces dialog thinking that perhaps my old workspace would be available in there, but it wasn't in the dropdown. I did have my Flex workspace setup in a folder that wasn't the defaul, so once I tracked that down everything was back to how it was prior to the update. Probably need to include this information in a technote.
