Location of softkey settings?

I am having a problem where on soft reset my 700wx is showing "Messaging" and goes to the Outlook account selection instead of showing "SMS" and linking to messaging.exe (using threaded SMS app)...if I look at HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys it shows the correct setting...

The strange thing is once I receive an incoming call or write a text message, it fixes itself when I close back to the desktop...are there other registry entries that can affect the softkeys? If not, how would the OS know to put "Messaging" when I changed it? Btw, when the phone first reboots and before it finishes loading it shows "SMS" correctly for left softkey and "Contacts" for the right softkey...at the point where the phone becomes responsive it switches to the above "Messaging" and "Menu"...

No doubt a mxip*.provxml or mxipupdate*.provxml file is fixing this for you. Sprint started using them heavily recently. These files will "repair" crucial registry entries upon soft/hard reset. The latest 6900 rom has them throughout to "keep things running" the way sprint intended too...

Find the guilty mxip*.* and edit out where it changes it...your registry location is correct...

It looks like there is no easy way to find out which one it is...is that correct? I guess I'd have to disable one at a time and see what happens?

Re: Location of softkey settings?

Or just copy them all to your PC and view them with Notepad. (they all should be in \windows) They are just a text style .xml file, Just the naming of them makes windows "reload" them under certain conditions. Soft reset being yours it sounds like...
