just installed 0.97.2 version of aMSN, and saved the profile and fixed all the settings i wanted.
but the only thing that refused to be saved is the custom nick I give everybody in my contact list.
i've tried both just signing out and logging in, and quitting the program and start it again to see if there is any difference, but there ain't.
it doesn't save the custom nicks i've given everybody.

am I the only one having this problem?

Can you look at the contents of C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\amsn\<address>\abook.xml ?
Paste it if needed (you may censor it).

i see that the customnick is set, but when i go into properties on that person, it doen't show the customnick under settings, the customnick textfield is empty.
this goes for all my contacts..

i just notices something else that doesn't get saved like it should.
the global alarms/notifications settings, i can set them like i want to, and then sign out, and sign in again and its the default settings with everything eneabled, even the alarm-sound wich doesn't work either for some reason.

maybe a reinstall could be in order?

Just add a custom state and there manually write your name. This works as a temporary solution for this.

Actually I'm seeing the same thing with both dev and 0.97.2. It seems to have started in these few days.

Only thing I did different is I logged on to another machine with WLM 9.

Now my nick won't save, and all my contacts revert to e-mail, until I see them log on next time.
