after clicking on the flickrbackup exe file I get
this message " you did not authenticate Flickr Backup
to have read only access. Without this, Flickr Backup
will not work"

I don't know why it's asking that and there is no
documentation on the help screens and nothing comes
up when googling.

    Flickr Backup must authorize with the Flickr service and ask
    you to grant it READ access. To do this, it tries to launch
    your browser and direct it to a page on flickr to request
    that access. It sounds like the Browser launcher isn't
    working, but I would need you to try some other things.
    However, I have no idea who wrote this bug, so I don't know
    how to help you. Please create a sourceforge account before
    submitting bugs so that I have a way to contact you.
