Hi dfcwolf,

I had the same error today. And "found" the following fix. You have to edit the following file default.py in your folder skin.cirrus\scripts\script.favourites.
So as you are using Win7 you will find it probably here : C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\skin.cirrus\scripts\script.fav​ourites (thats where I found it).

now open the file in a texteditor like Notepad++ and go to line 27 where you should see:

self.fav_dir = 'special://masterprofile//favourites.xml'

change it to:

self.fav_dir = xbmc.translatePath( 'special://masterprofile//favourites.xml' )

save it and it should work

if not pls send me a pm and I will send you a modified Cirrus-Skin version (only this line changed xD )
