Main menu does not show when logged in

Starting a few weeks ago, when I open Spark I do not get the main menu at all. I can receive messages from users, but I cannot initiate any chats or toggle any settings.

I’m using windows XP with newest version of Spark.

I tried uninstalling/re-installing Spark as well as updating my Java and re-installing Spark. Neither made a difference.

Any further suggestions?

Update: if I maximize the menu from my toolbar, the menu shows up. But if I try and make it normal size it disappears.

You can try the newest-newest version from here https://igniterealtime.org/downloads/nightly_spark.jsp

(spark_2_7_0_665.exe)

It’s the latest development build. It should work ok. Though maybe it won’t remove your problem. You can also try starting with a fresh profile.

Exit Spark. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Spark\

Rename this folder and start Spark again. If the problem is gone, you can stop Spark and copy spark.properties file from the renamed one, then user folder (which contains history) and maybe other settings files.
