The addon then used the "real" settings from the copied file.

Try this:
  1. Open your SavedVariables folder.
  2. Delete the existing kgPanels.lua and kgPanels.lua.bak files.
  3. Copy/paste the 37KB kgPanels.lua file from the UI download into your SavedVariables folder.
  4. Log into WoW.
  5. Log out of WoW.
  6. If you now see a 1KB kgPanels.lua file and a 37KB kgPanels.lua.bak file, this workaround will work for you. Delete the kgPanels.lua file, and rename the kgPanels.lua.bak file to kgPanels.lua (remove the .bak extension).
  7. Log back into WoW. You should now have the correct kgPanels settings.

If that doesn't work, install the addon BugSack and post any errors it reports from kgPanels.

If no errors appear, attach the 37KB kgPanels.lua file to a post in this thread so we can look at it and try to figure out what is wrong with it. The UI uploader may have accidentally deleted a comma or bracket when he removed his personal information (character names and servers) before uploading it.
I did what you said and my KGPanels.lua went from 37 to 1. However, the bak file was 1kb before and after I logged in and out.

It wouldn't let me load the kgPanels.lua.bak file but this is all it said:

Oh, and I attached my .zip just incase you needed that. Thank you very much for your help.

Lua Code:
  1. kgPanelsDB = {
  2.     ["profileKeys"] = {
  3.         ["Ve - Area 52"] = "Default",
  4.     },
  5.     ["global"] = {
  6.     },
  7.     ["profiles"] = {
  8.         ["Default"] = {
  9.         },
  10.     },
  11. }
