 So I have Windows 10 64bit and are logged in with a Microsoft Account.

 Every Time I start Pidgin it forgets everything: Accounts, Configs ...

 In the Debug Log is often something like this printed:

 (22:51:17) util: Writing file blist.xml to directory
 (22:51:17) util: Writing file
 (22:51:17) util: Error renaming
 C:\Users\Tim\AppData\Roaming\.purple\blist.xml.save to
 C:\Users\Tim\AppData\Roaming\.purple\blist.xml: Permission denied
 But for all xml files in that Folder.

 If I start it as Admin everything works but, with Autostart its kinda
 annoying to always click on "Yes"



 Use Windows planned taskd to elevate to Admin.
