Hello Paul,

The first thing i did when got the error was eliminate the lazarus config 
dir and executed lazarus to
create a fresh one. Unfortunatly, doing this, the file was not created with 
same error.

Answering the questions:

1) I got, file not found. None is displayed.
2) I´m not using -primary-config-dir
3) Yes, the two files are there.

Just to note that i´m using a localized (portuguese) version of win xp. The 
path to lazarus config is
c:\Documents and settings\User\Configurações locais\Dados de 
aplicativos\lazarus. (there is spaces in it).
This is equivalent in english version to c:\Documents and 
settings\User\Local configurations\Application Data\lazarus.
