Hi Ronnie,

You're making it *really* hard for us to help here. Mentioning that it's
running Windows is significant (even I assumed otherwise).

What OS are you running & which build of CouchDB?

Did you verify the installation before moving your DB files in?

-> fresh install of couchdb to an empty directory
-> launch any browser except IE
-> open futon
-> right-hand side is a "verify install" button

Does that work?

If not, restart couchdb & don't run futon, just provide output using

    curl -v http://localhost:5984/

And please copy & paste the output from the werl window somewhere
(not in email) please, e.g. friendpaste?
