I down loaded XBMC on my Windows XP machine.
I ran it.
I got a full screen with XBMC logo in the center for a short while.
I then got a blue background with some lighter blue bubbles, full screen

Followed by NOTHING!
No video, no audio, no text, no graphics, NOTHING!!!!
Just the blue screen with the bubbles for 5 min. when I gave up.
Control-Alt-Delete did NOTHING!
The alert button did NOTHING!
I had to shut down the computer, to get it to respond.
The log is available on;

Unhappy user!!!
I'll get you your refund right away.
Try rebooting, it may have installed some libaraies or something.

Could be lots of things, but hard to tell without a debug log (wiki).

PS I know starting a debug log doesn't seenm intuitive if you can't even start the program, but you can use the advancedsettings.xml method.
I set up
<loglevel hide="false">3</loglevel>
in file advancedsettings.xml
The log file grew.
