Shutting down Windows but leaving MM on resets settings

Post by Forcen » Tue Feb 07, 2017 12:16 pm

Is this normal? It feels like this has happened a couple of times now.
Next time I start MM it asks me to say where my music is, it does the UAC popup, shows that website and starts downloading like 50 podcast episodes despite it being set to never auto download anything automatically.

I was kinda used to shutting down MM before windows because it tended to forget my current "session" if i didn't and where it was in my current podcast. Forgot 2 times now and this more annoying thing happened.

I'm using the latest debug build. 4.1.15.1827
I'm using Windows 10 64bit.

MediaMonkey saves settings on proper exit, so it's not recommended to close Windows without exiting MediaMonkey.

Shutting down windows 10 should do a proper exit for running software right? It has this nice "X is preventing windows from shutting down" screen and everything?
Have you had this happen also?

What if i did a proper exit which saves settings, start up MM again and an improper exit happens? Old settings are expected to disappear?
