I cannot launch the DesktopVR on any of the 3 PCs that I have.  I have tried running the program on these 3 PCs:


Dell Laptop with Radeon Mobile X1400 running XP SP2 and DX 9.0c.  Everything is updated.

Sony VAIO running Vista and DX10.

Desktop PC with XP SP2 and DX 9.0c.


Each PC I try this on has an immediate run error when I double-click on the EXE file.

I am thinking I am REALLY missing something in the process of running this program.  Is it as simple as double-clicking the EXE in the root directory?  Or is it more complicated than that??

I am definitely a noob when it comes to comps--I have enough knowledge to deal with common hardware and such, but I know nothing of C++ or custom drivers, etc etc etc...

Thanks!

do you have the .NET framework installed? it's a normal update from microsoft's website, but not everyone's downloading it.

i think downloading the express edition of visual c# and making the change of fullscreen mode should help you a little more. that will let you dig into the code to see the issues as well.

it really could be a number of issues. do you have a screenshot of it or maybe looked at the application logs on those machines to see a more detailed explanation?

Details, details. Things to do. Things to get done. Don't bother me with details, just tell me when they're done.
