I had the same problem too but using ProcessMonitor I saw that the Configuration was given an access denied in c:\programdata\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal. If you're running Vista, just launch MediaPortal Configuration as an administrator (UAC... right click and choose "Run as Administrator")
If you're running XP, I think that MP need access in c:\program files\all users...

Hope that helps...

Yup, this works for me with Vista Business.. Just rightclick the icon with which you start the configuration utility and then run it as an administrator.
