Version 0.36 beta released

* Fixed bugs: some small bugs
... but introduced one new bug: version 0.36 doesn't work anymore!

No error message - it just does absolutely NOTHING when you start it.
Thanks a lot for the report.

Could you give me few more info about your computer: what’s OS, CPU, RAM? Can it run the previous version (0.35)? Thanks again

Windows 10 Home 64bit, Core i5, 8GB RAM.

All previous versions (up to 0.35) were running without any problems, only the new 0.36 refuses to start.
Looking at some special Windows folders in C: I see that it creates an empty(!) folder 'BanksiaGUI' in %APPDATA%,
but that's all - despite of it nothing happens (not even the usual error message that WIndows wants to send
an error report to Microsoft).

How about running the previous version now? Is still OK. If need, you may re-download the verion 0.35 by this temporary link https://banksiagui.com/dl/BanksiaGui-0.35-win64.zip)

Can you delete or move or rename (temporarily) the configuration folder of BSG then try the 0.36 again?

To find that folder:
* if you can run the previous version, run it, open Settings dialog (menu -> File -> Settings), click on the 2nd last button "View/Edit/Delete" to open Configuration dialog, click on "Browser" button to show that folder then delete or temporarily move all files to other folder
* if you don't have or can run the previous version, the configuration folder is usually located in your AppData folder, such as C:\Users\youraccount\AppData\Roaming\BanksiaGUI\

Well, I've already tried both things before:
0.35 is still working, and also after removing the config folder 0.36 does not work.

I have been still struggling to reproduce the issue after trying with several computes. Thus it will take more time for me.
If anyone faces the same problem, please use the previous version 0.35 as the temporary solution.

Well, don't worry - let's wait if anyone else reports the same problem, or if it only happens on my computer (although this would be very unlikely).

I have multiple systems (Windows), Desktop 1 worked with no problems, however Desktop 2 did indeed have the same issue. I decided to stay on version 35 for the other systems.

Thanks all for your patience. I have managed to reproduce the issue on a Linux system, fixed the bug, and uploaded new binaries (0.36b). Please download and help me to test them.
