Bug Description

----- workaround
in the registry in the branch
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\

delete the branches starting with org/sikuli/...

... and try again (might be necessary to logout/login or even restart the system.

The cause: Sikuli IDE saves the position of the window at shutdown. With the new monitor setup, this is now invalid.
----------------------------------------------------------
Hi,

I was able to install the Sikuli IDE successfully on my Windows 7 machine.
After some "playing" with it on Friday, I tried to fire it up again today. Executing the "runIDE.cmd" I get the following output:

+++ running this Java
java version "1.7.0_25"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_25-b17)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode, sharing)
+++ trying to start Sikuli IDE
+++ using: -Xms128M -Xmx1024M -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Dsikuli.FromCommandLine -jar C:\sikuli\sikuli-ide.jar
[error] Location: outside any screen (1272, -8) - subsequent actions might not work as expected

and a yellow box saying: " Sikuli IDE 1.0.1 ... starting - pls. wait ..." . Now its waiting and waiting and waiting....

What do I do?
