I recently started using the HydraIRC client and I want the application minimized to the system tray most of the time.

I go to Options > Prefs > Advanced > Booleans > Minimize to SysTray and it works, but this setting seems to be reset every time I open the application.

Is there a way to save settings when I close the application?

After some digging around I found the answer to this. It seems that Windows 7 doesn't allow programs to write to the Program Files (x86) directory.

Move your HydraIRC folder into C:\ or another writeable location and settings will be saved fine.
