Using 3.6.7 CS and Windows 8.1 with newly loaded CS. (Had to remove, clean registry, and reload CS to get it to work.)

I am trying to get all of my menu items resorted after having to reload several software packs that were incompatible with 8 to 8.1 upgrade process. If I click and drag them into my own set folders, they are great UNLESS there already is an entry in that folder. When that happens, everything moves okay by using the 'Replace' option, but I then lose my CS menu (except for my CS menu image). I have to right mouse click on the CS menu image, then choose 'Exit', then click on 'ClassicStartMenu.exe' again to get the menu to reload. It ONLY happens when I am trying to consolidate duplicates in my menu structure.

Updated to newest version. Not sure if it works or not but will let you know in the future as I add back things I had to remove to get 8.1 upgrade to load and install.

If you are consolidating several folders, it is best to use Explorer to manage the 2 Start Menu\Programs folders. There are 2 of them, one is at:
%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
and the other is at:
%ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
