I see this title has been posted since 2005 with 30+ inquiries and 2000+ views and no one really has a clue what the exact nature of this error is.
What does this error message mean:
"List index out of bounds (-1) error message"
Is there no CoffeeCup Forum Moderator that will help here?
I get this massage when clicking OK to the Website Project Setting Box.
Informed response PLEASE?!?
Bottom line is that something is either not coded properly and this is causing the error you are seeing (unlikely or everyone would have this problem) or something on your machine is conflicting and playing havoc with your particular installation (and the other 30 or so you mention - out of 8 million plus I might add). This doesn't happen on any of my machines so it is likely something local (and in common) on yours and the other 30 machines.
Since you are so demanding of answers, I imagine the first thing you did was opened a support ticket with Coffeecup. In my experience their support is excellent (you don't get the owner of Adobe posting in their forums) and if I may offer some friendly advice; coming here bristling with attitude isn't going to make their support any better. Place a support ticket and if they don't help you, then perhaps you will have good cause to come here and flame them.
In defence of Coffee Cup I would like to say their support is excellent. I had a similiar message recently in html editor 2009 and Scott responded very quickly with a couple of suggestions. In the end Scott said the only way to resolve this problem was to raise a support ticket. Coffee Cup arranged a technical support phone call with me, dived into my box and fixed the problem.
Thse pesky out of bounds messages are difficult to resolve in fairness to Coffee Cup are often not a making of their software but perhaps something within your machine setup.
Give these guys a chance at Coffee Cup they are there to help. Raise a support ticket and see if they can solve it for you.
Sorry for all the troubles.

startup, and there were no (recent) projects in the projects.ini file,
causing the project list to not have any items in it. When it went to
save the project settings, it was getting the list index error,
This might have occurred from deleting the projects.ini file, or
removing projects, I'm not exactly sure yet.
The easiest way to fix it is to start the editor, and open a project
using the My Websites -> Open Website Project... menu, and select the
project file (*.cpf).
This will add the file to the recent projects list and everything
should work fine.
We have fixed the code to add the last opened project to the projects
list when starting up, as well as an index check when updating a
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
