I've just downloaded 0.63-t021 on Windows 7 and started it. The first thing that greeted me was this nice crash:

For the search engines, the full text read:

Assertion failed!
Program: C:\temp\putty.exe
File: ..\conf.c
Line: 235
Expression: empty

Additional information: Windows 7 64bit; both the 32bit and 64bit versions of Puttytray 0.63-t020 work just fine on the same machine.

Well… thank YOU for your continued work on PuttyTray. I love saving sessions to files; makes syncing across computers (e.g. via Dropbox) that much easier, if not possible in the first place.

I'm on Win 8.1 64 and got this crash yesterday after downloading the latest Putty Tray. It seems you guys are already on the ball, so I just want to use the opportunity to thank you for your great work on putty tray! :)
