Can't use tor.exe when bundle with Vidalia

I've installed bundle with Vidalia. When using Vidalia everything is fine, but launching tor.exe instead of Vidalia leads to a failure. Tor check website says I don't run Tor at the time. Tor.exe prints in console that "Tor has successfully opened a circut. Looks like client functionality is working" and "bootstrap 100%: Done.". However, former line prints: "Configuration file "C:\Users\compname\AppData\Roaming\tor\torrc" not present, using reasonable defaults.

Tor version:
OS: Win7
Browser: Firefox

The problem you are having is that Vidalia runs Tor with the configuration you've set through Vidalia, it doesn't just run "tor.exe".

If you want to have a more in-depth knowledge about Tor, I encourage you to read the documentation and build your torrc file that you can pass to a Tor instance. Otherwise, you should keep running Vidalia.
