    Please, need help, UDK just won't start!

    Hi there,

    I have a Vista-64-Bit-PC with enough power to run the UDK. So I downloaded it and installed it. When it said "Preparing for first run..." the installation stopped and nothing happened. I opened my task manager and saw the UDK.exe running in the "processes" tab (note: NOT in the "Applications" tab!). I killed the UDK.exe process and the installer told me that the installation was successful. However, now I can't start the UDK, I don't get a splash screen nor anything else, just NOTHING happens at all! (except for the UDK.exe showing up in the "processes" tab in task manager...)

    I tried the february release first, then the january release, both with the same result - installation works fine but I can't run the UDK!

    If you need some diagnostic data or something please let me know. I really want to use the Unreal engine for creating my own game...

      Allright, I'll give it a shot. However, I tried to run the UDK.exe as administrator with compatibility mode xp sp2 and even turned off aero's desktop-effects, the result was the same.
      Direct x 9c should be fine (actually as vista user I have direct X 10), I'll check graphic drivers, but every game I installed so far (quite a few xD) worked fine so I don't expect any errors here.

      Thanks 4 help
