I've never posted here before but I've been using Boxee on my iMac for a while and I just got the invite to try on Windows. Everything seemed to download and install fine on Windows but it won't open. I get a "this program has stopped working" error.

I've got a Toshiba A205 laptop running vista
Intel Core Duo 2.0
1G RAM
32-bit operating system
video card supports opengl 1.4

Any ideas?

That's exactly what mine is doing. Let me know if you figure anything out.

Do you have XBMC installed? I have experienced crashing when using both installed at the same time.

I don't have XBMC installed so that can't be it. I've tried uninstalling it and downloading it again.

I have the same problem. Boxee starts and under a second later it chrashes. The only difference is that I don't get any error messages.

My spec:
Windows Vista
Intel Core 2 Q9300
3GB RAM
1GB ATI Radeon 3870 x2

Solution posted in earlier thread:

Boxee has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working (fix).
