cant run arduino.exe in vista

hi i have windows vista ultimate 32 bit and i recently installed arduino-0015 on my computer and when i click on arduino.exe i get the error that says error getting the arduino data folder. I have tried runnings as admin and tried run in windows xp compadability mode. I noticed another post and the solution was to change something in the properties.txt file but i dont have that file. I have also tried installing other versions but nothing has worked. Any one have any ideas? Thanks for the help

I have ultimate and it works fine, so it shouldnt be compatibility... do you have java installed?

I would also try redownloading the folder and trying it (u said you tried other versions, try the same one again... it fixed a similar issue for me once for whatever reason)

Like jezuz said, it will probably be solved by redownloading the program. It has worked for me anyway. :)
