I'm having the same problem installing beta 23 on an XP machine. I've installed it on another XP machine and a Windows 7 machine, but for some reason it won't start on this one. I get a black screen & a cursor, nothing else.

On these machines how upto date is the java runtime?

Try getting the latest Java runtime. It can't hurt and may help.

Sounds lke a graphics driver problem. Make sure you have the latest drivers.

Latest graphics drivers don't always help.

On my Windows 7 Home Premium Laptop M44 online is unplayable with thee latest graphic drivers. I had to go back a version.

The problem description seemed with the loading of the game - not graphics, but I could be wrong.

Most likely it is a video driver issue.

nVidia recently fixed their drivers, so their latest versions now does work. Give it a try and let us know how it goes.
