I have the same problem with LisaCalc - it just hangs on startup.

Also, I find the current implementation of preferences quite confusing. I am trying to switch between various profile images - one for LOS 2, one for workshop 2, and one for LOS 3 and Workshop 3. What is the proper way to ensure the preference file is updated and/or used? I frequently find myself in the situation that the preferences being used do not correspond to the preferences in the dialog, so I must be doing something wrong. I notice that there is an entry in the registry with the location of the prefs file (this is on XP) - how do I ensure this gets updated as I change preferences from the dialog?
