Securecrt buttons created are not saving in button bar

Hi Team,

I have created few buttons in "default" button bar in securecrt - Upon closing all the session and securecrt window - The buttons are disappearing.

Even I tried to create a new button bar with name "General" and created few button on General button bar. After restart of securecrt all the button are disappering. I don't know what wrong ?

Can anyone help me on it?

Verison : 8.3.4
Operating system : Windows 10

Hi pvsarat,

Generally, when changes that one has made to buttons don't stick around after the software closes and reopens, it's an issue with SecureCRT writing to the actual ButtonBarV#.ini file (I note a # instead of a specific number because while SecureCRT version 8.3.4 uses V4, newer versions of SecureCRT now use a V5) within SecureCRT's configuration folder.

If you locate your Config folder (the path to which is visible under the General > Configuration Paths category of Global Options), does your user context have permission to write to your Config folder and the ButtonBarV#.ini file within?

If you do have those permissions and you're still unable to have new buttons stick (the file may be corrupted and generally unreadable/unwriteable), your next best step would be renaming that ButtonBarV#.ini file to something different like __ButtonBarV#.ini so that SecureCRT can create a fresh button bar file the next time it restarts. With a fresh, re-written button bar file, do you still see the issues where your buttons don't stick around after a program restart?
