You probably talk about the V2R5 demo version.
IIRC there's a help file which talks about installing it on FAT32, you have to run a script afterwards.
If you converted FAT32 to NTFS already then try to uninstall and reinstall again...

Submit "net start recond" from commmand line. Then check the windows eventlog (applications) for errormessages, if it's still not starting...
