I'm having a problem starting up mgegu.exe. It simply crashes with the standard windows error screen. It claims the error is "System.NullReferenceException".

I assumed this meant I had the 'lack of registry keys' problem, since I had not previously started the game up. So I reinstalled Morrowind, played it and quit. I reinstalled MGE, tried to start mgegui.exe up and got the same error.

I don't have the game installed the default place, in case that matters. I'm using Vista 32bit, recent PC, fully updated drivers and game. Any idea what the problem is?

    Any further details, past the NullReferenceException? It should list what the exception is coming from.
    Also, try giving both Morrowind and MGEgui administrator privileges (regardless of UAC level).

    Problem solved!

    Thanks for the advice. I gave the launcher admin privilidges (otherwise setting the options simply doesn't do anything), then ran morrowind with the admin privilidges. After doing all that updated the registry, mge worked like a charm, no bugs at all, and looked ace!

    As a side note, where could I find the really recent shaders, e.g. knu's ssao v9?
