Hmm, can you send me the file C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\AirsoftSoftwair\Hollywood\Preferences\com.airsoftsoftwair.apkcompiler? Then I'll be able to examine what's wrong there.

That is weird. Do you have multiple users on your system? What happens if you delete the file, start APKCompiler and close the program again? Does the file have a size of 0 then too?

i dont have more users in the system, the solution was delete the file and reconfigure it, no problem, maybe is a good idea make a .bak file of the preferences , and if the compiler read the prefs file with size 0, load the .bak

Hmm, strange. Do you remember what you did right before this file's size became 0? Can you reproduce the problem?

Ok, if some weird external programs wipe your AppData folder then it's no wonder that APKCompiler crashes :)

I had a similar issue here. All of a sudden apkcompiler refused to start, and just gave me this error on startup.
"Error deserializing item! File: apkcompiler.hws (current line:1586 - In function: LoadPrefs)"
I suspect this happened due to my laptop have a fan issue and sometimes just shuts down for heat protection.
My prefs file does still have some content, but its not a readable text file.

Is there some way I can decode the prefs file myself in order to read the data?

I've had a look at the prefs file you sent me via e-mail and it's all zeroes. The prefs file is written once you close APK Compiler so the only explanation I have is that when shutting down Windows killed the APK Compiler process while it was writing its prefs file. I don't see how else this could happen. But the solution is simple: Just delete the prefs file and it should work again.
