"Kernel failed to load" means that it isn't finding the packages.  (If you don't have a keys.cfg, it dies before noticing this, but that's just a change of symptom.)

Make sure your packages are all in the right place.  Let's say you've installed to C:\uqm...

You need these files and directories.

C:\uqm\content\version  (which should begin with the line "0.3")

(If you installed extended music and voices, there will be other zip files in C:\uqm\content\packages, too.)

If you need the -n option, run the program with
uqm -n c:\uqm\content
