There are two main ways to get FLL NXT Navigation (FNN) working:

Tested on Multiple Installations
1) Download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86)
3) Download current FNN release
3) Extract all the zip files or only the Release directory and files
4) Navigate to the Release directory
5) Click on and run FLL_NXT_Navigation_12-27-08.exe (requires the NXT_picture.jpg file to be in the same folder)
6) See these tutorials for more details

Recently tested on a brand new Windows XP installation
1) Download Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition (not required to run)
2) Download current FNN release
3) Extract all the zip files
4) Navigate to the Release directory
5) Click on and run FLL_NXT_Navigation_12-27-08.exe (requires the NXT_picture.jpg file to be in the same folder)

Future versions will try to eliminate the dependency on the redistributable package.  Suggestions on how to configure Visual C++ to do this are welcome.
