Under certain circumstances it might happen that the configuration files (AVISOFT.CFG, RECORDER.INI, DEFAULT.INI, ...) have been damaged, which can prevent the proper operation of the software, even after re-installation. This issue can be fixed by executing the SASLab command File/Configuration/Reset or the RECORDER command Options/Configuration management/Reset. Alternatively, the entire folder Documents/Avisoft Bioacoustics/Configurations could be deleted.
