Hi Arjen

the most common cause of this is the lack of a directory for the log file for either artemis or athena to write to. in windows 7. see the link bruce sent. if that directory doesn't exist ( or for some bizarre reason they cant write to it) ,neither program will create it and when you attempt to start them a "dos" window " opens then closes as it finds it cant create the log file.
Obviously there could well be a different reason but the symptoms you describe are associated with this problem.
