[WriteLog] Problem with Writelog and MMTTY on Windows 7 64-bit

The first two lines are written into the INI file in C:\Windows. This
file is completely ignored by Writelog, which uses the file in
Windows directory. Copying these lines from one INI file to the other
fixed the problem. The other lines you listed are configuration items
specific to MMTTY.
If the maintainer of the plugin still follows this list, may I suggest
that the installer be updated to place the lines in the correct
writelog.ini file on Vista and Windows 7 systems.
Thanks again to all who answered.
