Are you running Windows Vista

If so you need to make it so you have full control to the CFG file witch you can do by following this:

1. Right click the CFG file and click Properties

2. Click the security tab at the top

3. Click the edit button in the middle and make sure every user has full control.

Try again after that and it should work.
