Can you launch the inspiration pad? (F-8 from within the program) If that
loads ok, then the scripting engine is running ok. Its possible some
security setting could interfere with the scripting engine, but there
havent been any problems specific to Vista in that regard reported.

Armed with a new wiki, I've placed a pair of simple GoblinAPI plugins online:

btw, it's ShowMapStats(), which may be why its not executing. Press F-5,
and type that in. You should get the dialog box.
