You probably want to run it from a command-line, so you can give it information about what it needs to search for.

It is not a GUI tool, running the exe will start it without arguments, so it will just show its help text and exit immediately.

What you want to do is start a command-line (start -> execute -> "cmd" or something in windows), go to the directory the program is in (using cd [dirname]), and then type "vanitygen", and see what it tells you about what arguments it accepts.

Tip for anyone reading this, put the vanitygen. exes in your C:\Users\[username] folser so that you don't have to use the cd command every time you open command prompt Smiley

Vista/Win7 Protip: Hold down shift while right-clicking on a folder, choose "Open command window here".
