What works

Installation.

What does not

The program initially refuses to run. This is because it needs SkyHook.DLL, which is in the "System" subdirectory of the program folder, but it can't access it.

After copying the DLL to the program directory, the program starts, but is totally unusable. The colors of the interface are wrong (lots of red). The video normally shown when the program is run for the first time never appears, nor does the window for choosing what kind of project to create. Instead, a message box is displayed, but it's impossible to tell what it says because the font is the same color as the background. The only thing in the interface which is responsive is this message box's OK button, which closes the program.
