Summary0001508: Program fails to write changes to speedfanparams.cfg
DescriptionSee steps to reproduce. "Enable DELL support" setting is required on my Dell Precision Workstation 670 in order to be able to control the fan speed. Otherwise, changing the fan speed does nothing. With the beta version, I was able to play with it a bit and change the setting manually in the cfg file. Even after doing this, some times when I loaded the program it worked fine, and other times it would not control the fan speed.
OS is Windows 7 Ultimate - Retail.
Thank you for your help.
Steps To ReproduceClick "Configure" button
Click "Options" tab
Place check mark next to "Enable DELL support"
Click "OK"
Close Program
Setting is not written to speedfanparams.cfg file
Still reads "false"
Additional InformationSpeedFan is awesome!! For some reason the Dell factory default fan speeds basically let the machine start on fire before deciding it's time to speed up the fans.
TagsNo tags attached.

I can't find where to edit this bug report....
I made a mistake. The program IS writing the changes to the CFG file. What is happening is when the program starts it is removing the change. Sorry, I didn't notice this. Please see log below:

Also, I forgot to mention I have the program set to use Windows XP SP3 Compatibility mode. If I do not run the program in compatibility mode, and i set the Dell flag in options, the next time I start the program i get a "Privileged Instruction" error when the Dell sensor constructor starts Then an "Access violation at address -------- in module 'speedfan.exe'. Read of address --------"
Actual address block numbers vary.
