OpenRA/OpenRA#11314(comment) suggests you might be able to fix this by running OpenRA in windowed mode (the link contains information on how to do that).

Another problem could be your antivirus blocking OpenRA (OpenRA/OpenRA#15555).

The third thing that comes to my mind are outdated graphics card drivers. Check if they are up-to-date.

And if there is no file settings?

The settings and log files are written as soon as the game starts. If they don't exist then this is a sure sign that something on your system - probably antivirus software - is actively preventing OpenRA from starting properly.

Avast always blocks openra for me upon new installs, so definitely a troubleshooting route worth going down.
