What graphics card do you have? Some cards can't play OpenGL, but yours would have to be pretty old to be that way.

Um, that's what I have.  Apparently doesn't work with d3d, as you said.  OpenGL is no good (found it after opening launcher again today; don't know why it wasn't there before) since Vista apparently doesn't like it (something about W32) 

I repeat D3D support is down. You have to use OGL ALWAYS. Some builds don't use D3D even if you select them and in the future it will disappear completly.

OGL works completely fine under Vista IF YOU HAVE GOOD DRIVERS. Only Microsoft generic drivers are crap. Either ForceWare or Catalyst work fine. (But take in mind that some beta releases can be defective, the most recent example: ForceWare 169.xx Crysis series seem to be defective in OGL, stay with official 163.75)
IF YOU HAVE TROUBLES WITH FS2:
  • Please, please, please, READ and UNDERSTAND the sticky threads in FreeSpace & FreeSpace Open Support board.
    A lot of people are willing to help you, but, as anyone can understand, seeing the very same "issues" repeated again and again can become quite depressing. Please, spend a bit of time trying to solve the issue by yourself.
    (Lobo deserves a monument).
  • Then, if you aren't still able to solve your issue, feel free to ask for help in that same board.
    FYI, most of the troubles are caused by wrong mod installations which lead to either missing data or undesired cross-effects between them. Always follow the mod installation instructions and keep a clean FS2 installation as explained in the sticky threads. Two additional links about how the game handles game data:
  • If you think that you've discovered a bug, mantis it.
    Provide as much info as you can, and try to narrow it down. A lonely "FS2 doesn't work" is not a good report.

ForceWare? You mean Nvidia? It would help if we knew what type of card he had.

Latest official is 163.75, right?  Is your driver beta?  Try using the latest non-beta drivers, see if it works?
