The application installs OK, although it pops up a warning that the installer has not been signed.

Unfortunately, on double-clicking the icon a popup appears:

bm_conv.exe has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.


(Needless to say, it doesn't).

Unfortunately, running it in compatibility mode all the way back to Windows 95 and with all the Vista bells and whistles turned off (Aero, desktop compositing etc.) gives exactly the same error :(

A shame, as Bookmark Converter is still extremely relevant - among other things, although IE7 (at least in Vista) finally understands Firefox exported bookmark files, the user interface for importing them has not changed, goes back to IE4 (at least) and is hopelessly crude ...

Confirmed in Vista final does not start.  Compatibility mode does not help.
