To run on Vista and Windows 7 without too much hassle, POV-Ray 3.6.2 has 
introduced some changes regarding where certain files reside, which 
unfortunately isn't compatible with MegaPOV 1.2.1.

You'll need to copy the contents of "<My Documents>\POV-Ray\3.6" to 
"C:\Program Files\POV-Ray for Windows v3.62" in order for MegaPOV to run.

Alternatively, you can copy "<My 
Documents>\POV-Ray\3.6\ini\PVENGINE.ini" alone, and adjust the paths in 
there to point to "<My Documents>\POV-Ray\3.6\...".

Be aware that if you're using Vista or Win7, you may run into the very 
same problems with access rights that POV 3.6.2 tries to avoid.
