This shouldn't happen as Emu Loader checks the CRC32 of "mame.exe" (or another filename) at startup and updates the CRC32 info and version info. The exe filename is not saved back into "\arcade\emulators.ini". I searched and searched and searched... and couldn't not find the reason for this.
I will do more tests and tryouts. If nothing works then I guess I can add a new setting to disable the "arcade emulator new binary detection" function.

Someone else reported this bug a while ago, but a couple days later he fixed it by doing a clean frontend install.
Forgive me for saying this but, why you waited until now to reported this ?

This is exactly the bug I fixed on this build. The main window seems to be focused but it actually is not. The only way to fix it is to select another element in the main window or select another opened application and go back to EL.

I myself was having this problem for the past 3 years and could not find the reason. I was driving me completely insane, I tell 'ya. It was annoying as hell!
Then I decided to rewrite the startup functions and test the sh@t out of it until I found a solution.
Are you saying you didn't have this bug in previous builds ?

Thank you for your support.
