Can't get vvvv to run

Any help out there?

Just tried to run vvvv on my Dell XPSM1330 running MD Vista.
I extracted all files and ran the .exe. The DirectX pops up. Alt+F4 doesn’t work to close the window and I close it using right-click on the task bar.
When I delete the args.txt file to run it then nothing much happens after the introductory grey square.

Any thoughts? Am disappointed because I really want to see what it can do!

ah, this is what kalle made the new TroubleShooting page for. can you find yourself there?

Perfect. Sorted out now. Thank you.

out of interest…what was your problem?
