To get an idea of what problem you're having, try this.

1) Open up Explorer and point it at the uqm directory (default: C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters).
2) Hit start, click on run (or alternatively use the win+r hotkey), and type "cmd" (in NT/2K/XP), or "command" (in 9x/ME). No quotes, of course. Hit enter.
3) You should be presented with a command prompt. Type "uqm" and press enter.
4) Allow the program to run long enough to error out. Since you started from the command prompt that window shouldn't close. Now you'll need to copy the error message. So...
5) Right click on the window's caption (the bar along the top), click Edit, then Mark in the menu that appears.
6) Drag a box around the text you want to copy, and when you have what you want, hit Enter. This will copy the text to the clipboard.
7) Make a new post, and paste the error here.

Once you have an error posted maybe then someone can figure out what the heck is going on.
