Help with Amikit refs

Oops I think I did a bad thing!!!!!

I was going through the Prefs folder checking the prefs settings of various things and started one "Amikit Screen Prefs" (forget the exact name) but anyway I accidentally chose a screen resolution that is not supported by the monitor.
Now when I start Amikit the Amikit starting screen is rotated -90 degrees and gets stuck. To get out of it I have to use Ctl-Alt-Del to call up Windows task manager to kill it.

What do I have to do to restore things so Amikit will run?

Bad boy KenH! ;)

Start your AmiKit and hold down both mouse buttons. Then select to boot without a startup-sequence and type following commands:

assign env: ram:
execute "sys:prefs/screenmode amikit"

A screenmode requester will popup again. After you select a screenmode the program will probably complain about muimaster.library and the system crashes (!) but don't bother becuause your new screenmode setting is saved anyway...

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Amikit is now running again.

Mind you, I had to have 3 goes to find at what point to hold down both mouse buttons. 1st time probably too late, 2nd time too early but third time lucky.

This "test" PC is the only one in my network that doesn't have higher than 1024 x 768, that's why I got caught out.

I think that this is nothing to do with screen mode. It seems that something prevented the install script to finish its work. Try to manually copy AmiKit\Prefs\Presets\AmiKit\Install\S\Startup-Sequence file to AmiKit\S\ folder and restart the emulation.
