Another thought:

Since the app can be launched from the Desktop, it sounds like it's not being allowed create its preference file while quarantined in the Downloads directory.

I assume this problem is with macOS Sierra. If so, have you disabled Gatekeeper to allow apps to be downloaded from places other than the App Store? (Needs to be done from the command line thanks to Apple protecting us from ourselves.)
