Hi Pete,

There's no path to setup. Here are some things to try if you are having a problem 
with this feature:

If you use Vista try disabling the UAC (User Account Control) "feature". Do a Google 
search on "disable vista uac" for more information.

Try installing WinQuake in an other directory other then "Program Files" like 
c:\winquake or d:\winquake.

Try logging in as Administrator, if your system is setup with different user accounts.

To work properly, the system must associate the file type of .kml to Google Earth. 
This should happen automatically when you install Google Earth.
