Hi Carsten,

it has been already reported (once) that it had failed to start. the problem is caused by vs2008 and ""more improved debug dll hell"" :)  
we are shipping debugging versions which are incompatible with vc redistributables. the fix is to distribute release version of that application BUT the gui is just a proof of concept for now - you cannot really edit pdfs with it. That is why it is really not a priority now.

For using pdfedit on windows you have currently these options:
- cygwin http://www.cygwin.com/
- http://www.andlinux.org/
- virtualbox or similar
- wait for http://code.google.com/p/pdfeditor/
- go for another pdf editor ;) try to google it, there are pretty good ones for 30-day trial

neither ideal but at least something.
