Assume you are talking about the VLC configuration tool? Maybe post your VLCconfig log file here, plus your VLCconfig.config.xml file so I can make sure it is pointing to the right place.
I can find the VLCconfig log ok but can't seem to open and post the VLCconfig.xml file.? I know that you are busy so don't worry too much about it. It is only minor.

Yeah, you probably won't have a viewer for an XML file, so you'd have to open it in notepad, maybe right-click, 'open with', notepad, or just start notepad, 'open' and navigate to it.

<!-- Main roads only. This is the default.
The files we're using here are roads_main_*.bgl, but since we don't want these file to have the option of
being deactived leave this filespec blank!
<Option label="MAJOR ROADS ONLY" fileSpec="" image=".\Images\Roads_main_sml.png">
This option will only show major roads in New Zealand making urban areas appear more dense. Load times will be better but framerates may be reduced as more autogen features will show in urban areas.
<!-- Apply all roads files -->
<Option label="ALL ROADS ON" fileSpec="roads_all_*.bgl" image=".\Images\Roads_all_sml.png">
This option will show all roads and tracks in New Zealand, perfect for low level VFR. Load times may be slower with this option on but frame rates maybe better as less autogen is shown.

<!-- lights -->
<ScenerySet name="Lights" pos="2">
<!-- Apply all lights files -->
<Option label="ALL LIGHTS" fileSpec="lights_urban_*.bgl;lights_mway_*.bgl" image=".\Images\Lights_all_sml.png">
This option will show all lights (motorway and major urban). Load times will be slower and frame rates may be heavily reduced with this option turned on.
<!-- Urban lights only -->
<Option label="MAIN LIGHTS ONLY" fileSpec="lights_urban_*.bgl" image=".\Images\Lights_main_Sml.png">
This option will only show the motorway lights. This option gives the best of both worlds for those with mid range systems.
<!-- No lights files -->
<Option label="NO LIGHTS" fileSpec="" image=".\Images\Lights_none_sml.png">
This option will turn off all night lights. People with slower machines or those who want maximum performance should choose this option.

<!-- streams -->
<ScenerySet name="Streams" pos="3">
<!-- All stream files -->
<Option label="MINOR STREAMS ON" fileSpec="streams_*.bgl" image=".\Images\Streams_on_sml.png">
This option adds minor streams to compliment the larger water features, perfect for low level VFR and helicopter operations. Load times may be slower with this option on.
<!-- No streams files -->
<Option label="MINOR STREAMS OFF" fileSpec="" image=".\Images\Streams_off_sml.png">
This option removes minor streams leaving only larger water features.

<!-- Shelterbelts -->
<ScenerySet name="ShelterBelts" pos="4">
<!-- All shelterbelt files -->
<Option label="SHELTERBELTS ON" fileSpec="cvx_ShelterBelts_*.bgl" image=".\Images\Shelterbelts_on_sml.png">
When set to 'On' this option shows minor strips of trees (shelterbelts) which can be useful for visual navigation.
<!-- No shelterbelt files -->
<Option label="SHELTERBELTS OFF" fileSpec="" image=".\Images\Shelterbelts_off_sml.png">
When set to 'Off' this option hides minor strips of trees (shelterbelts) which can improve appearence.

Define the Textures, these are all sourced from a single directory, and one or more filespecs are used to define them.

inactivepath is relative to VlcConfig app (eg. fsx\VectorLandClass\Texture\Inactive)
activePath is relative to Fsx (eg. fsx\Scenery\Global\texture).

When apply is clicked:
If the texture checkbox is ticked all texture files in the path (*.dds) will be moved to active path.
If unticked, any files in the active path with same as as a file in the vlc texture path will be moved to the inactive path.

The problem with the Configuration Tool has been resolved.

EDIT. Spoke too soon. I still cannot APPLY changes.
