Settings not working from menu (1 Viewer)

Tried to look up similar topics with search, but seems that I have an unique situation here.

I'm having some issue with Settings function. I cannot access Settings from Mediaportal menu. Settings is visible but when trying to open, screen flashes and reverts back to "root menu". Settings can be accessed via Mediaportal configuration tool so it appears to be a problem with menu structure. I have pretty basic setup with few addons, but with a quite large collection of media items, so I'm not eager to reset my configuration. If I remember correctly, this problem occurred first time when I updated from earlier version to 1.13.0. Also it doesn't matter if I have default skin or any other skin active.

Where could I start troubleshooting?

I'm using Win10 + MediaPortal 1.14.0.

    The problem is that you've disabled the settings plugin. To fix:
    1. Open MediaPortal Configuration.
    2. Go to the "plugins" section.
    3. Select the "settings" plugin within the "window plugins" section.
    4. Click "enable".

    Heh, I must have disabled it accidentally at some point.

    Thanks, much appreciated!
