    So, I downloaded and installed RetroArch 0.98 just recently for Windows 7 64-bit and I have run into a major problem, it never saves the configuration changes I make. I have to change the audio, video and directory settings every time I start it up, as if it never remembers them, even though the config files themselves are updated to with the time I actually make the changes. I set it up, load a ROM (doesn't matter which core I use), and when I exit, the bloody settings are back to their default. Not sure why this is happening, or why it forces me to reconfigure it, making me not want to use this emulator.

    The location of the folder isn't even in any sensitive area, and yet, it tells me the files are read only, but it doesn't allow me to change the attributes despite being the admin for Windows 7. WTF?

    Any suggestions?
