The version of ResFind is not causing this problem. My own StrED_cfg has
the old 2006 version in it too and StrongED starts up fine.

In your old UserPrefs.AutoSave.List there must have been a text that
used Dump mode. Due to changes made two steps were done in the wrong
order that caused an abort when trying to load a text on start up that
uses Dump mode. Putting things in correct order fixed the problem.
