Working just fine so far. I've even noticed a (very)slight drop in memory usage

Beware that's the included foo_freedb2.dll is the older version. Get the latest on foosion's page.

If I update means I lose all my settings, columns_ui setup etc?

And only if your profile is not stored in the foobar2000 setup directory.
Ie the file user_profiles_enabled exists in your current foobar2000 main directory

Otherwise be careful to backup the foobar2000.cfg !

Yes, also back up "%APPDATA%\foobar2000" directory.

"just in case" backups are pure paranoia. The installer does not touch your foobar2000.cfg at all.

Regarding the "per-user settings" / "user-profile support" option: just leave it as it is.

And if you have accidentally switched it during setup, you can reset it in the player. Without losing anything.

Thanks, glad to hear that. Everybody's worrying just because there is little additional information or documentation.

Not entirely true. foobar2000.exe doesn't have a manifest that specifies the required privileges (for Vista). That means Vista assumes that foobar2000 is not UAC aware and virtualises access to the program files directory (when foobar is launched without admin privileges). Whilst that continues to be true, there is a particular circumstance in which you could lose your settings. The fact that the installer launches foobar2000.exe with admin priviledges doesn't help here (and is otherwise wrong anyway).

Also relevant is the fact that the XP to Vista upgrade process quarantines all .ini files in the program files directory (i.e. including the foobar2000 installer's .ini file). And if you enable user profiles later (on Vista + UAC) without admin priveleges you will end up with the "use_profiles_enabled" file in the VirtualStore directory, ready to wreak havoc at some later date.

Bye

Thanks for the update, gonna install in a second.

Just a note to the developers: with every update to foobar, the same question gets asked over and over "will I lose my settings if I update?". For those of us who know we wont, we don't need to be told that we wont, but for others who aren't entirely sure, maybe a notice in the installer that says you wont lose your settings?

Anyways, thanks again *downloads*

File version says its 0.9.4.3 while foobar core says 0.9.4.4, seems a small typo.

If "just in case" backups are pure paranoia, I'm happy to be a paranoid. The installation of foobar 0.9.4.4 deleted the entire content of my \components\ directory. It haven't touched my .cfg file, but I would've had a hard time to find back all my components.

Anyway, thanks for the update.
