Since v 5.1 all settings are stored in the document and settings folder. This is the proper way to store settings in Windows. Although I personally prefer to save settings in the application folder, this will not work with Vista+.
There are some ini-files still left in the application folder, but there are not settings that are written to. There exists in case advanced users would like to modify them manually.
There could be ini-files left for older versions, but FR should automatically detect which ones to use.
I'm not exactly sure of what your problem was. All I can say is that I have has a lot of trouble with the settings because of Vista+, but I think that the current way is working as intended.
