I just installed SE Pro 2017 v22.0.2.1 64-bit for Microsoft Windows and I have two "List Backup History for Current File" buttons sandwiched between the Save Current File and Print Current File buttons (See attached screen shot).  When I click on either button, it opens the same History Diff - Backup History window.  I currently have a Java workspace and project set up if that makes any difference.  Are there suppose to be two List Backup History buttons?

P.S. I have installed the hotfix_se2201_1_cumulative.zip.

Did you just upgrade?  If so, from what version?

One of them isn't History Diff (with version control) is it?

Dan,
Yes, I upgraded from v22.0.0.9.  Before upgrading, I uninstalled v22.0.0.9 and installed v22.0.2.1 into the same directory. 

I'm using git.  Both History Diff windows show versions.  How do I tell if one is with version control?   I've looked through help and the User Guide, but haven't been able to find info on this.

Thanks for your help.

If it were History Diff, you would see versions from git instead of Backup History.

Dan,
No, the two buttons are displaying History Diff.  I've attached screen shots of the windows displayed when I click on the History Diff buttons (HistoryDiffButtonOne.jpg and HistoryDiffButtonTwo.jpg) as well as the window displayed when I click on Tools | Version Control | History for Percolation.java (gitHistory.jpg).

I'm not sure how I got rid of my two history buttons, but after uninstalling SE 2017 v22.0.2.1 and installing SE 2017 v22.0.0.9 I ran into problems with SE Help not displaying [See my post re Help not displaying].  Apparently, the help issue is a known issue and Clark recommended deleting the files under c:\users\<user name>\ AppData\Local\assistant.  After doing this and discovering that SE 2017 v22.0.0.9 does not support JUnit 5 (at least I couldn't get it to work.  See note below) I installed SE 2017 v22.0.2.1 and lo and behold I only have one History button.

I'm guessing that the two History buttons had something to do with the files under the assistant directory?  Or it might be the c:\users\<user name>\Documents\My SlickEdit Config because I backed up and deleted all of the subdirectories under this directory.

NOTE: I'm a Java newbie and the error I got had something to do with org.junit.runner.JUnitCore which I gather is something used by JUnit4 and not JUnit 5 since JUnit 5 has been reorganized into different modules.
