    You have to create the file if it is missing. – V-X Oct 9 '13 at 7:22
  • Should be users\username\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin\ is that what you meant? (Application Data folder was renamed appdata for win8) – Neil Neyman Oct 9 '13 at 13:19

  • You're going to need to post your configuration file to get help with that. Be sure to remove passwords and other sensitive data first! – Neil Neyman Oct 10 '13 at 13:55
