    More info - what version are you on? If you're not on the latest, go get it and upgrade.

    Fire off
    Code:
     C:\Program Files\PARS\bootstrap.exe PARS /V
    from a command prompt for more verbose info. Swapping /V for /M will give you debug* info.

    * of the "oh dear FSM, I wanted debug info, but not this much" variety.

    If you're trying to upgrade it via RDP, it'll fall over until you change the value of

    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Volatile Environment\2**\SESSIONNAME
    to "console"

    **this varies
