For all those who are having issues getting the worldserver.exe to load, in the log files I noticed that it was pointing to a directory(probably a directory from the creators PC) that was incorrect. I had to open the worldserver config file and specify the Source and mySQL target locations as they had changed. exp: the default value of "" was set for both of these fields. I simply navigated to the paths in explorer and copied them into the Quoted locations in the config file. it should look something like this. you can open the config files with Notepad.
