i wasn't aware of that...

i can easily understand that... i guess the confusing part was that the missing 
section was not created as other sections have been done in past versions... i 
mean, i've never had to create any sections in all the years that i've been 
running a perproxy... i've edited the ones that were created but i've never had 
to create them...

actually, i did intentionally remove all sections that were listed as 
contestclosed=1 to clean up the ini file of all the old unnecessary sections 
before loading the new 347 build of the perproxy...

i don't understand your last statement "not created missed .ini sections 
automatically and refused to start"??

thanks for your response!
