Was there an error displayed?  Are you running WinXP?

i would suggest updating your video card drivers....If you are running windows XP, you may not have installed any video card drivers?   or did you?  The DVD Decoder part of the software may not be installed....so in installing the correct drivers may resolve that issue.

Can you check the event log for an indication of where the error is occurring?
