#1936 closed defect (outdated)

Hi there... Recently, my Scummvm (latest version)
stopped working, and I don't know why. All it does now,
when I double click, Is open up an ms-dos window and
display "Config file buggy: Invalid character ' ' occured in
domain name in line 29!" until it eventually closes up the
window. I use win xp, and it worked perfectly up to
yesterday! Last thing I did with itwas add up COMI, and
it was working perfectly...

I can't run it, and I've tried everything, from reinstalling
it, to running windoctor... Could you please help me out?

Thanks a lot.

Try deleting or moving out your ScummVM.ini file (in
C:\Windows) and see if the crash still occurs.

Hey, it worked. Thanks a lot, guys.

Sounds like the bug that was reported a while ago, where
ScummVM would let you enter invalid characters (e.g. spaces)
into target names (the strings within brackets in the config

I believe the current development version prevents that, but
I'm not sure.

Yup, indeed. You could probably salvage your old .ini file by openening it
with a text editor and fixing the "bad" section string -- that is, look for
anything looking like this:
Now, any of these section headers which contains a whitespace, for
example, is broken; remove the whitespace, and it should work again.
