I know this may soo stupid that there is an ini file out there somewhere that
uses 3.62 default scene settings?

Is there anywhere (URL wise) that explains the 3.62 default scene settings
compared to the 3.7 default settings?

The main difference is the gamma handling.

In version 3.6.x, it was common to use an assumed_gamma of 2.2.
In version 3.7, you are encouraged to use assumed_gamma 1.

Adding #version 3.6; will force the use of the version 3.6.x conventions.
Adding #version 3.7; will use the new conventions.

In version 3.6.x, the default output file format was .BMP under Windows 
and .IMG under Mac OS. It's now .PNG for all platforms.
