Just did a fresh install of Bg1 and then Bg 2/Weidu. the game works perfectly and I haven't had any issues so far, except one. every single time I start the game, it pops up the "since this is the firs time you've played Baldur's gate II...you must configure" warning, then takes me to the config settings. I did it the first time, applied my changes and hit OK. Every subsequent time I have to do it, my changes are still there and I just hit cancel. It's a bit annoying. anyone have any idea why it might be doing this?

If you installed in a protected folder (like Program Files), I could imagine the game doing this. It would be failing to update a file.
This annoyed me for my entire first playthrough before I found the solution:

The desktop shortcut goes to Baldur.exe (or is it BG.exe?) where you need to push 'Play' and then go to the config screen every time.
Change the shortcut to point to BGMain.exe and it should cut that out and go straight to the BlackIsle/WOTC/etc logo screens then the main game.

Thank you, that did the trick! :D

Happens to me and I installed it into C:\Games\Baldur's Gate II

thanks!
FYI using the wrong icon will cause this problem.

Don’t use the “Baldur.exe” icon but instead use the “Launch Baldur's Gate - The Original Saga.exe”
