I've replied to your email.
For the benefit of everyone else - you have chosen to save your settings in C:\Program Files which is an OS protected folder - you do NOT have permission to write files there, so unless you run XMBC as administrator, it wont be able to write its settings (or log) to that folder!

You shouldn't change the default folder unless you have good reason to, and if you do, you should choose a folder that you have write access to!

If you are using the portable version, you shouldn't run it from under program files (that nullifies the whole point of portability) - if you want it under program files, use the installed version!
