Did you install OpenAL?

Run the debug build (It's the one with _d or _debug in the file name) and then post the fs2_Open.log you'll now find in your data folder.

in fact i never got this error:

Error:
Web cursor bitmap not found. This is most likely due to one of three reasons:
    1)You're running freespace Open from somewhere other then your Freespace 2 folder;
    2)You've somehow corrupted your Freespace 2 installation;
    3)You've haven't installed Freespace 2 at all.

Well the answer is right in front of your face then.  It's one of those 3 things?  Either

1.  You are running FS2 from someplace like My Documents which is a no-no
2.  FS2 is corrupted
3.  You don't have FS2 installed.  The installer does not install FS2 just FS2_Open.  You need to buy a copy of FS2 and install that first.

Well first you need OpenAL for certain. Unless you already had it installed the game would never work at all.

Secondly that error is caused if you have FS2_Open but don't actually own Freespace2. How did you get the game?

Okay. Now try running the debug build like I suggested earlier. If you're getting an error message you're definitely getting far enough to produce a log.

Is there a file called "Root_fs2.vp" in your \freespace2\ folder?

Edit: No, wait.

You must have the Launcher (and the FSO builds) in your \freespace2\ directory.
