I found the problem. Windows User Account Control (UAC) in Windows Vista.
>From Wiki (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Account_Control) :
=====>". . . if an application attempts to write to a directory such as
"C:\Program Files\appname\settings.ini" to which the user does not have
write permission, the write will be redirected to
I looked in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program
Files\icecast\logs and found the created logs by Icecast. The other
solution is to disable Windows UAC and then run Icecast with administrator
privileges, which can successfully write the log files to C:\Program
