    Garbage at the beginning of the settings.ini file?

      Hello all,

       

      In order to deactivate the security popup when clicking on an external link in a QlikView report I have a VBScript that writes a line to the settings.ini file located in the AppData (or Application Data) folder QlikTech\Qlikview.

       

      My script was failing on finding the existing section, "[Settings 7]" and kept adding it as a new section.  Looking at the file in notepad didn't show anything unusual so I brought it up in a hex editor and there are three random characters at the start of the file.  They are hexadecimal EF, BB, BF.

       

      I've checked at least three installations and they are all there.  Anyone else see this or know what it's for?

      Thanks,
