now i can't set my audio files to queue at the end of my Testing playlist... guess it's back to the 0.9.5.5 for me!

Hm, interesting. I haven't noticed this so far, but yeah, the file types menu has disappeared. Is there any way to make a portable foobar make its associations? I always use it in portable mode even though foobar is the main music player on my system - I like to keep everything independent from the core system which can be backed up and restored this way (and I can use the very same foobar from my pendrive at different locations). Previous versions could make the file type associations even when they had configs in their own folder and it's good that way - but it's troublesome to restore in case of some rogue application grabbing them.

The location of the configuration files is a separate issue from "Portable Mode", although both changes were made to better accommodate Windows Vista.

Either way, these changes aren't new and were made in 0.9.6 and discussion of them doesn't belong in this 0.9.6.1 beta thread.
