IPrefs OS3.9 Problem

At startup I get an 'Intuition is attempting to reset the Worbsreen....' error.
It's happening just after IPrefs is loaded. Anyone has any ideas what might caused it?

What do you have in your startup-sequence after IPrefs?

Maybe it's something in your user-startup that's causing the problem
You must have done some changes for this to happen.
It's some command that's being executed before workbench is launched

It does not matter, what happens *after* IPrefs is loaded. The error occurs *before* IPrefs. As the message says, IPrefs tries to close the Workbench screen but there are some windows open which prevent the screen from closing. So check which windows are open and correct the programs which opened them. The usual windows are the initial CLI window which opens if a program in startup-sequence or user-startup writes some text to the console (e.g. an error or copyright message) or a requester telling you that there is a problem e.g. with the CD-ROM drive. The latter is usually hidden behind the IPrefs requester.

If you know which program causes windows to be opened, it's easy to correct: either remove the program, add >NIL: to the command line or correct the CD-ROM mountlist.

Most like a program outputting some text, which can be avoided by adding >NIL: to the line in question.

Yes, I know that. But as I wrote above, it has a reason to issue this message. Please tell us the reason. List all windows which are opened (except the IPrefs requester itself, of course) and what it written inside these windows. You might have to move the requester aside to see if there is another requester behind it.

Thomas, that the only system requester I can see even with moving the requester aside.
Drives me mad.

If it were me I would try to comment out these following lines

If Exists SYS:WBStartUp/Enabled/Booty1
Set Echo On
Else
Set Echo Off
EndIf


If EXISTS C:SquirrelSCSI
C:SquirrelSCSI
EndIf

Set SCSIUpdate 1
If EXISTS C:IDEFix
C:LoadIDE START QUIET
Set SCSIUpdate 0
EndIf

If EXISTS SYS:Expansion/XSurfIDE
Set SCSIUpdate 0
EndIf

If EXISTS SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive/NOSCSIUPDATE
Set SCSIUpdate 0
EndIf

If $SCSIUpdate EQ 1
SetPatch QUIET
Else
SetPatch SKIPROMUPDATES "scsi.device" QUIET
EndIf

Unset SCSIUpdate


C:PatchControl

C:TagLife


If $Echo EQ "On"
C:Version >NIL:
EndIf

If the requester goes away, then you know where the problem is, and can narrow it down bit by bit. If the requester stays, I would comment out other lines to find it.

Anyway, the startup-sequence looks fucked up if you ask me, way to crowded for me

hmm, I would install the original startup-sequence then, and add the tools on at a time. What I wonder about is all the Set Echo On/off you have; I have none in my startup-sequences..

Well, then the best you can do is to restore the original startup-sequence and rename user-startup and then recreate user-startup one entry after the other until the problem reoccurs. If the problem does not occur from user-startup, leave it as it is. Don't touch startup-sequence, it is not meant to be edited by users.
