-Are you running it as an administrator?
-Do you have Python installed? If so, what version?
-Do you have ftldat? This program needs it, as I recall.
If any combination of these do not help, try re-downloading the program or downloading an older version, as your download may have become corrupted somewhere down the line either during the download or during the extraction. Considering it's spitting out a Python error, my money would be on a glitched bit of code somewhere, but I'm no coder so don't quote me on that one. If that still doesn't help, Grognak would have to help you as I don't know any further than that.
Well, this clears up the air a bit.
I am indeed the administrator of this computer.
I do indeed have Python, and according to control panel, its 3.2.2
I never got ftldat, because what I read of Grognak's didn't say that it was a necessary addition.
let me go check and get back to you right after these messages.
*obnoxious and irritating commercials here*
so, here's what I did;
firstly, I reaffirmed my administrator status, which has remained apparently unchanged in the history of forever.
next, I replaced my 3.2.2 Python with the latest version, 3.3.0. First I spent about 3 minutes scratching my head before disregarding that the site advises to use Python 2.7 series if you don't know which version to use.
lastly, I went to install ftldat, but I recieved a vicious warning from my computer about insufficient permissions and admiral ackbar.
I decided to heed the warning and went to try the mod manager again, with due caution.
(more after the break)
-- the break --
after trying to run it, I found the problem unchanged. So I embarked on the dangerous quest to circumvent my security program and get ftldat.
and then I saw why my security program was freaking out-
Threat type: Backdoor.Win32.Swrort.zb
my computer says its a trojan, and I've already lost one computer to viruses, so I'm not sure I should take the risk...
I need advice D:

Any ideas what this means?
Running Windows XP with the Steam edition of the game, if that helps.
you have the same problem I do, more or less.
