Portable Version Crashes When Portable Mode Is Turned On

description

Hi,
 
Sadly the portable version crashes on start-up right after enabling "portable mode" in options.
 
Thankfully I just delete the BrowserChooserConfig.xml file to get my previous settings back and no more crash on start-up.

OMG second after posting this it's obvious the issue. lol Figures. ;)

UAC kicks in when changing options and the config file is created via admin so the user does not own the file.

So just take ownership of BrowserChooserConfig.xml and no more crash.

So yeah its a bug. The file should be created in a way the current user has read/write permissions.
