Cool, I found it in the registry and got it all fixed up, now GEM and zexy 
open automatically.

Thanks, I'll take a look in the registry.
Any idea why it would stop allowing me to open the Startup and Path GUI's?
I rebooted a bunch of times. The "message" GUI still comes up.
For now, I read through the documentation and realized I could include flags
in the Windows shortcut properties, so it's functional. Gem is great!!

This is a bug of the 0.38, use 0.39 or manually edit the entries in
Windows' registry.

Make sure you use the correct name - pd is case sensitive. Maybe you
want to try a startup command like:


This works for me.

I'm not really sure, but I think .pdrc is for OSX only. On Windows all
settings are saved in the registry.
