>Window state is saved when maximized

Window size is acting weird in 5.3.1 (java8 not 7 sry/windows8.1).

ok so i set the size and position like so in ums.conf prior to launching ums:
window_geometry = x=0,y=0,width=800,height=600
screen_size = 1280x768
python.path = c:\\Python27\\python.exe
rtmpdump.path = C:\\PROGRA~2\\UNIVER~1\\win32\\rtmpdump.exe
youtube-dl.lib.path = C:\\PROGRA~2\\UNIVER~1\\win32\\YOUTUB~1
engines = ffmpegvideo,mencoder,tsmuxer,ffmpegaudio,tsmuxeraudio,ffmpegwebvideo,vlcwebvideo,vlcvideo,mencoderwebvideo,vlcaudio,ffmpegdvrmsremux,rawthumbs
window_extended_state = 0
launched ums, the window size was as i set it. then maximized it and quit. it changed to:
window_geometry = x=0,y=0,width=1000,height=750
i don't know why but height and width changed all by themselves.

has anyone else been having issues with the auto update lately? this is the second time it told me there is an update but it couldn't install it because the program doesn't have admin privileges. i am on windows 10 and am the administrator. i also tried making the program always run in admin mode but then that breaks the program from starting up with windows

Nice job!

Here an advice:

I like to put all my media in Windows Server OS, that works pretty well for me beacuse my server has more resources that any PC (Xeon processors, 16+ RAM, SAS Hard Drives, etc) which is good to render 1080p movies.

Having said so, installing UMS as a service (which is the best runnning option for a Windows Server) takes a bit more than a few steps to get done. I.E. WS requires to install services with an LOCAL_SERVICE account in order to get the Processor IO priority beneffits, also, the service cannot be controlled from the UMS UI beacuse it is not recognized at all and you can end with two instances working at the same time.

I think it requires a little more effort to correct the UMS installer to be given as a service instead as an application. Windows Server is the default for those who use UMS in server arquitectures.
It worth it.

Thanks!, Eduardo!.
