Hi Robert,

never mind my private mail. Your mail has arrived, after all.

Again, my first guess is that you have previously started a KDE application 
from a separate user account in the same session. Currently that's a known 
problem in KDE on Windows. If that may be the cause, either try rebooting, or 
  kdeinit4.exe --terminate
from a command line in both user accounts (warning: This closes all running 
KDE apps).

If that is not the issue, could you try starting "kwrite", and see if you can 
open any files, there?
