Suddenly famitracker is not opening on my Windows 10 machine.
The error pop up is attached here.
I've also attached the minidump.


Thank you.

I just happened to check into these forums for the first time in a while and i felt bad not trying to at least help, just a fair note these forums are extremely dead, maybe it's worth joining the FT.O Discord if you need any further help

Either way, try using regedit and go to "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FamiTracker" - right click the FamiTracker folder and click Delete. You'll lose your settings in FT and recent files, so if you have anything you want to remember settings-wise, write it down or screenshot it. FT should work now, just reconfigure it to how you had it if you want to

A lot of times, just deleting the HKCU\Software\FamiTracker\Window position key will make FamiTracker work again without losing the rest of your settings.

(I've been told in the FamiTracker.org Discord server that if the window is so far down the screen that the top of the pattern is below the bottom of the screen, FT misbehaves. This is why deleting the window position often fixes it.)
