You have to set some environment variables. The documentation delivered with the archives is not complete. Have a look in the FAQ page.

Here is an example for Windows:

set CSF_MDTVFontDirectory=e:\cascade3.0\src\FontMFT\

set CSF_MDTVTexturesDirectory=e:\cascade3.0\src\Textures\

set CSF_UnitsDefinition=e:\cascade3.0\src\UnitsAPI\Units.dat

set CSF_UnitsLexicon=e:\cascade3.0\src\UnitsAPI\Lexi_Expr.dat

The FAQ page contains a bug. You have to write Lexi_Expr.dat instead of LexiExpr.dat!

Best regards
