I've got a problem using qGIS. Always when I try to launch the programme with the desktop icon, nothing happens. I also checked the Task Manager and it doesn't show any process running regarding qGIS.
@yalestar: The target field shows this: "C:\Program Files\Quantum GIS Lisboa\bin\nircmd.exe" exec hide "C:\Program Files\Quantum GIS Lisboa\bin\qgis.bat"
@Sven: I don't think that's the case, as I don't get any error message, but I'll give it try.
@Underdark: I had Microsoft C++ 2008 already installed, so I launched the installer and selected to repair it. However, qGIS still isn't launching.
@Sven: I've tried your soulution, but qGIS still isn't launching.
@mapoholic: Nope, I'm using Vista 32-bit.
@Andre Joost: I've tried to launch it manually, but then I get an error message telling me, that qgis.bat couldn't be found. I don't have any .qgs files on my PC, so I can't test it.
@M P: Thank you for the help. :) However, I can't find qgis.bat in the bin folder. But there's a file there called 'qgis.bat.tmpl'.
