If I could get some assistance with this error:

I was able to use it a couple of times, loaded a new kit I believe, and now this happens everytime I open it.  I tried to uninstall and reinstall, same issue.

Thanks for any assistance...

I have the same issue, the Windows Event Tracker was able to locate libportaudio-2.dll as the source of the problem. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to replace/fix it. Using a downloaded substitute simply led to hydrogen not even showing the splash screen, so I suppose it needs to be specific version.

EDIT: Using the same DLL from LMMS (which works fine) does not work either.

Another EDIT; For anyone willing to help, here is the Error Report from Event Tracker (partially translated for better understanding).

I should probably mention I run on Windows 7 64-Bit, Intel processor. Alls Visual C++ Libraries have recently been re-installed.

EDIT Again(sorry): After some testing I have noticed that the error only occurs in Versions above 0.9.6, at least for me. Maybe a problem with 64-Bit OS (which I have)? So far, I can only recommend using Version 0.9.6 if you run into this error.

Hello there,

Hydrogen 1.0.0-Beta 1 was released which may fix some of your problems. There's a 32 bit, and a 64 bit version now as well.

In your case, I would manually go into control panel and uninstall all the versions of hydrogen that are listed in your add/remove programs. Once you remove the old version(s), I would navigate to the install path, and if there is still a folder there, delete the folder and files (after making sure that there is nothing custom in there (custom being drumkits, songs, etc.)
