There is not a lot of information to go on there.  Perhaps there is a problem 
with path names with non-lower-ascii characters like here:


When you run into problems like this on windows, it is very helpful if you 
open the command window, cd to the location where the executable lives (which 
you can find by looking at the properties of the desktop shortcut), and launch 
the runner by hand.  If there are any error messages written when the problem 
happens, that'll help diagnose the problem.
