Robo-FTP won't run in a normal window. It seems to default to minimized and I can maximize it and see the console but it doesn't seem to want to run in "normal" window mode. (Robo-FTP 2.0.0 through Robo-FTP 2.0.2)

This is a bug that appears in v2.0.0 through v2.0.2. It was fixed in the v2.1 release. In these earlier versions, you can work around the problem by using the Windows registry editor (C:\WINDOWS\system32\regedt32.exe) and deleting four values from the Robo-FTP settings.

You will find Robo-FTP settings in one of two places in the registry depending on whether it was installed for All Users or for the Current User.

All Users: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Robo-FTP\FTP

-or-

Current User: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Robo-FTP\FTP

At this location in the registry, delete the following values that save the last know Robo-FTP window location and have probably been corrupted:

ConsoleWinCoordBottom
ConsoleWinCoordLeft
ConsoleWinCoordRight
ConsoleWinCoordTop

You will notice other xxxWinCoordxxx values also. If you have problems with other windows not displaying normally in Robo-FTP, these can be deleted also.
