You may have a permissions problem with running the program. Windows Vista, like its relatives Windows NT4.0, Win2k, and WinXP, allow or disallow applications from executing based on the user login.

Windows Vista and above have taken the user-login even further and have made it so that certain programs require administrator access in order to operate with the operating system because of the way they handle files.

I suggest that you try to reinstall Trainz under your current ID using administrator rights. This will ensure that the program has the correct permissions to operate properly.

Why did you try a new login may I ask?
