56. How can I return RealBand to the factory settings?

RealBand uses the files listed below for configuration. If you want to restore RealBand to the factory settings, you can delete or rename these files. The next time you launch RealBand, new configuration files will be created. This can help solve or troubleshoot odd and unexplainable problems you are having with the program. The files are found in the root RealBand folder, usually C:\RealBand. Important: You must have RealBand closed when you do this.

We recommend renaming the files (rather than deleting them) or saving a copy of them somewhere else on your hard drive so that you have a backup of your old configuration. For example, you could rename RealBand.ini to RealBand.old. Later, if you find that you need to restore your previous settings, you can delete the new RealBand.ini file that RealBand will have created, and rename RealBand.old to RealBand.ini

Note: Some people have trouble finding the files because Windows hides file extensions. In any folder on your computer, go to the Tools menu and click on Folder Options, then click on the View tab and make sure 'Hide extensions for known file types' is unchecked. On Windows 98/ME, the Folder Options item is found under the View menu.

  • RealBand.ini. This file contains most of the global RealBand settings, especially the settings in the Options | Preferences and Options | MIDI Devices dialogs. It also has a list of the most recently accessed song files.

  • RB.CFG. This file contains information about your sound card setup.

The two files above contain most of your program settings; it is usually only necessary to delete those two files. Other settings files include:

  • RBToolB05.Ini. This file contains your main toolbar setup.

  • DEFAULT.RWS. This file stores your most recent Window setup when you exit the program.

  • DXPluginList.ini. This file has the name and location of the DirectX audio plugins that RealBand has found on your computer.

  • DXiPluginList.ini. This file has the name and location of the DXi synthesizers that RealBand has found on your computer.

  • VSTPluginList.ini. This file has the name and location of the VST audio plugins that RealBand has found on your computer.

  • VSTiPluginList.ini. This file has the name and location of the VSTi synthesizers that RealBand has found on your computer.

I actually made a small program to do this.I use it each time I start RB. I made a *bat file than converted to a .exe app.
