File opening problem

I am trying to write a program that requires the use of configurations and I have put a button to create a new config and a whole set of dialogues to enter the information. When it comes to the part of my program where I need to save the info into ConfigManifest.dat and create a .cfg file, the program will not create the files nor open configmanifest.dat. Here are some my code files.


SourceToolEditor.cpp (The entry point)

I think I have the fstreams setup right but it still won't work. I have set up if statements to tell me if the stream did not work and it always shows up no matter how many differnet aproaches I try. I also have it set up to xp compatibility and set up so it uses static libraries instead of the dlls in the distrubute pack. I have turned both on and off and it has no effect.
email me if you want a copy of the exe to try it out at peteraddy96@gmail.com.
