Reviews for this release

Update caused crash on startup. This was solved by the action listed above of installing Visual C++ 2010 runtime. Not sure if the note was listed after the previous reviews but I have no issue. Thanks for the software. Nice work. Running 32 bit Vista.

When I disable hotkeys and press OK, the program restarts and those hotkeys are enabled again, causing the conflict tooltip to appear. It seems that the sub-settings (which keys are used for the hotkey command) work, but the main setting (is this enabled or not) doesn't save. I find the edge-switching incredibly annoying after just seconds of testing it out, thankfully that can be disabled.
