Hey Pervy,
So that I don't miscommunicate, can you give me the reason for wanting a startup and what you are wanting specifically? I'll be happy to help!

I keep having this problem, too. Every time I run Media Shout 6, despite the fact that I close all scripts before exiting the app, one or more scripts are opened in the recovered state the next time I run the app. This started the first time Media Shout 6 crashed on me, and every time it crashes after creating a new script an additional Recovered file appears when I start the app.

It would be nice if the app forgot about files to recover when the app is exited cleanly (no open scripts). Barring that, is there any way we can tell Media Shout 6 to stop trying to recover files until the next crash?

Hello,
Simply go to Settings, General Settings, Script and change "Default Script" to "None". This should resolve your issue. God bless.

Can you take a screenshot of what happens when you open MediaShout and another screenshot of the Settings, General Settings, Script tab?

Thank you. Can you try going to C:\programdata\mediacomplete\mediashout 6\autosave and remove everything inside that folder? Let me know if that resolves the issue.

No, sorry, that did not help either. :(

Hey Sean, this is quite unusual. Are you a Plus Member by chance where we could remote into your system and take a deeper look?

Sean, It sounds like Brandon has given you the necessary things to try for this particular issue. So I want to be sure we are not missing something. When he suggested to look in the AutoSave folder, I want to be sure we were actually looking in the correct directory.

C:\programdata is a hidden folder on most systems. So if you were actually looking in ProgramFiles, you would not have found the AutoSave folder. If you do not see the ProgramData folder when you look in the C drive, paste the path that Brandon provided into the File Explorer window.

If you were looking in the correct location, there is one more thing we can try. If this fails we will need to remote into the system so we can dig a little deeper.

You should see the attached .reg file. Download this file and double click it. Agree to the couple of dialog windows and it will clear out the V6 registry. Keep in mind, it will set MediaShout back to factory defaults, but it will NOT delete any database records or scripts you have created. It will not remember the scripts you created, but they are still where you have saved them.

It will reset and custom workspaces and any custom colors you have applied to your cues, but that's about it.

Let us know how it goes.

Brandon,
I tried the Delete reg file in Ben's reply. I didn't fix the problem.
FYI:
Recovered scripts are .sscx extension.
See attached Video.

I have been poking around and in ProgramData/MediaComplete/MediaShout 6
I see two folder--Server and TmpScripts which have subfolders for all the recovered scripts in question.
