The info on which skin is (to be) used is stored by BS.Player in a file "BSplayer.xml".
Depending on what you selected at installation of BS.Player this file may e.g. be present in the folder
C:\Documents and Settings\[YourName]\Application Data\BSplayer [PRO]\
or in BS.Player's installation folder (default C:\Program Files\Webteh\BSPlayer[pro]\.

Maybe you don't have proper (writing) rights?
Or are you a Vista-user and is UAC (user account control) perhaps playing a trick on you?

[A "raw" method to force your preference is e.g. edit (while BS.Player is inactive!) BSplayer.xml manually (e.g. in Notepad search for "<Skin type="string">Base</Skin>"); note this may be tricky; if something goes wrong, just rename the file and BS.Player will create a new one the next time around; however, you will have lost all your non-default settings then) or read this post:

Tizio will become famous soon enough
Default

Because with Vista the default admin has not the power rights you had in XP
To enable admin rights you have to make an hack to enable the real admin user, but I don't want to explain you how to do this (if you've not the right knowledge you can harm your system, but if you still want to do so on google you'll find a lot of examples)

Anyway you can still enable the writing rights by disabling the UAC (just search for "disable uac" in google to know how to do it), and when you open a program that need admin rights right click on that program executable and choose the start option "Run as administrator"
