I have ZTree installed in "C:\Program Files\ZTree Windows", if you install there, then the default config directory is switched to %AppData%\ZTreeWin.

My ZCOLORS.INI is in %AppData%\ZTreeWin, and is deteted as OEM.
Have you tried copying the file to that directory?
Have you tried running sysinternals procmon and filtering for ZCOLORS.INI?
What other ZTree configuration files are in the start-in directory?
Make sure that ZCOLORS.INI is in the install or start-in directory, but not both.

What is ZTree defecting the file as?
If UTF-8, maybe you have characters in the file that ZTree cannot process.

Have you used Alt-F6 to toggle to no colours?
There are three modes, 1. Process ZCOLORS.INI and the colour configuration, 2. Process ZCOLORS.the colour configuration, 3. monochrome.
