Are you starting EAC or REACT? When you run REACT it creates the INI file for you. You should always start with REACT going forward.
You can not have directory names which end with dots (most probably because of . and .. being current and parent directory).

Slightly OT, but, I had to upgrade to 22.214.171.124 (beta) as AVG anti-virus started complaining about AutoItSC.bin in the previous version! Whenever I tried compiling a script it would hassle me to death.
This time around I was ripping Ottmar Liebert's "Poets & Angels". Debug showed that it couldn't create the album directory, apparently because of the ampersand. I don't recall having this probelm before.
... I will release it as soon as I have updated the REACT wiki documentation.
1) metamp3/mp3gain and foobar has different implementations. I think there will be no audible loudness differences. 2) metamp3 is similar to mp3gain, but writes ID3v2 tags instead of APEv2. REACT applies albumgain by default, and adjusts it by 3dB to 92dB, so that it can be played back on every DAP with consistent (and sufficient) loudness. The UNDO tag is there so that you may undo the gain applied with metamp3 --undo-gain <files>. Edit: You will notice that all your mp3's will get album gain of about -3.0dB (relative to 89) because of the default settings.
