Hotkeys stopped working in Build 728

Hi,
I downloaded Build 728 (portable version, 64-bit) and installed that. I install new versions this way:

* I back up all settings in Freecommander.
* I shut down Freecommander.
* I open the Zip archive (e.g. "FreeCommanderXE-64-donor_portable728.zip") in Windows Explorer.
* I extract the files to the directory where the previous version of Freecommander was installed. So, "on top".
* When prompted I select "overwrite all".

...this has worked great for years. It also worked OK for Build 728, there is only one issue I have discovered and that is that my defined hotkeys do not work anymore.

I tried this:

* Opened the "Favorite items" dialog.
* Removed a couple of hotkey definitions.
* Clicked OK.
* Reopened the "Favorite items" dialog.
* Redefined the of hotkey definitions I just removed.

..however this had no effect.

Should I try removing: .\SETTINGS\FreeCommander.fav.xml? I am not sure at the moment whether there is something in this old file causing the problem, or something in the new build per se.

I am using:

* Version used: FreeCommander XE 2016 Build 728 64-bit donor
* OS: Windows 7 Enterprise SP1

Thank you
Jocke

I usually use a very similar way to update my FCXE - I haven't encountered any problems so far.
but obviously something went wrong in your update this time.

I once set FCXE to auto-backup settings daily and keep 15 backups.
perhaps you are lucky and you also can find a settings-backup.

Hi,
thanks for replying. I keep a lot of backups, too, of my Freecommander settings (including on a network drive). I did activate the settings from a week back, unfortunately it did not fix the hotkeys issue.

All hotkeyes does not work or only the hotkeys assigned to favorite folders?

Hotkeys work again in FreeCommander XE Build 729 (portable, x64).
