So, I have just had this issue pop up today out of nowhere. Whenever I try to launch AMS it sends me to the config screen with the SweetFX, Language, and Audio options blanked out. Whenever I try to select any of them, there is nothing to click. I have already tried reinstalling AMS and it still persists. I don't have any ideas on what I could do to troubleshoot so any help would be much appreciated.

Now, I don't know if this is the case or not but it seems like the config file or application doesn't recognize the path for the SweetFX, Language, and Audio options. This may be totally useless but could someone upload their config file so I could compare it against what I have currently? Thanks for all the ideas so far everyone.
I don't want to hijack the thread, but I've got some other "Config" issues that have confused me before and I wanted to solve them for racing/testing the new mods for this year.
Upon creating a new user file after a re-install, my game doesn't create it within the install but on the One Drive I have. I changed the Config file to have the paths within the main install, but it doesn't abide by it
Do I have no choice? I guess I might just link the one drive userdata folder onto my desktop to easily change things, but I think it's annoying that some games(Raceroom seems to do it as well, rFactor doesn't) see my One Drive as the place to install.
Someone says starting AMS via Steam or through the exe in the main folder creates some differences as well, not sure about that one.
Launching AMS through admin mode will make it read any plr files in the user data folder where the game is installed. If you start normally the game reads the plr file from my documents folder.
Alright, but I think it will still ignore it for replays and setups? I'll have to try(and set the game to be run as admin EVERY time), but if it ends up ignoring my wishes(and my config file that includes the paths I want it to save files to), it's probably not gonna work how I'd like it
When you go under properties for the AMS exe, tick "run as admin". I think I still always have to confirm every time I start up, but at least now the user file documents stay within the game and won't wander off to the One Drive or similar. I will have to try that with Raceroom as well once I use it again
