I recently bought a new PC and moved my old system into a virtual machine in VirtualBox. On the old system I had two monitors connected and moved some toolbars to the other screen. Now in the VM I have only one screen available and can't access the toolbars anymore. All other except one program moved all their windows to the right of the first screen automatically, and with one program I had to rightclick the window on the taskbar and select "move" until it appeared on the first screen. But the first didn't happen with AVR Studio and the second isn't possible, since the toolbar is no standard window.

I tried deleting some registry keys (below HKCU\Software\Atmel\AVRTools\AvrStudio4\AVRStudio\StudioWorkspace), where AVR Studio seems to save the toolbar settings, but values in projects will reset the position off screen. (or the keys aren't the right ones)

Can someone help me to get my toolbar windows back?

Btw. I have to use the virtual machine, because someone in the chain AVR Studio 4.18 -> Win7 x64 -> RS232 -> STK500 f***s up and refuses to work with the others :x . At least it works flawlessly out of the virtual machine (XP). So this works: AVR Studio 4.18 -> WinXP -> virtual RS232 -> Virtualbox -> Win7 x64 -> RS232 -> STK500 :? *annoyed*

The toolbars dialogue (Tools menu, Customize item, latsly the Toolbars tab) has a Reset button. Try fixing it with that.
