    Hi. As far as i can tell byt the exception the user config file at C:\Users\tomcool\AppData\Local\HolstSchumacher.dk\BrightnessController.exe_StrongName_mbnimjh4od0sa0bnazryknsdz5nusosv\1.4.3.36641\user.config was corrupted.

    Can you paste or attach the contents of the user.config file? Then i will try to find a fix for the error.

    A temporary fix for the problem would be to just delete the file. Then brightness controller should generate a new settings file.
