I have a Windows Vista (32 bit) computer. I tried installing and reinstalling (by uninstalling the software first) QGIS 1.8 a few times then went to version 1.7.4 and still encountering the same problem.

I don't know what the problem is since I am downloading the Windows version of the software. Could anyone help me with this issue?

    do you get any error-messages? – Kurt Jul 11 '12 at 21:47

This is a probable duplicate to the "you need to remove the old local configuration data to upgrade". An easy way to test would be to try it with a new user created on the same machine.


Remove/Rename the offending iconv.dll in C:\WINDOWS ;)
