Are you trying to run Multiplayer while the Singleplayer is already running? If not, try this:

  • right click on jamp.exe file and choose Properties
  • go to Compatibility tab
  • enable Compatibility mode and set it for Windows XP (Service Pack 2) ([SIZE="1"]most likely not needed, so leave this as a last option[/SIZE])
  • disable Desktop Composition
  • enable running with Administrative priviledge level ([SIZE="1"]most likely the solution, so try this first[/SIZE])
  • click OK and try running the game directly from that .exe file

"UU_BobaFett"VM_Create on Failed can be caused by 2 reasons:
  1. JA was unable to extract the dlls from the pk3s (usually the case)
  2. JA was unable to properly load the dlls (should never happen)
Now, the first one can be caused by multiple reasons:
  1. The file is in use (so trying to run JA twice simultaneously causes it)
  2. You (or JA really) dont have permission to create the file
On vista, its usually the second one, as vista blocks programs from altering files inside Program Files. That is, if UAC is active and the program is not run with administrator rights. So in this case, you gave JA administrator rights, thereby fixing the issue.

You could probably try the forum search for issues like this =P

Edit: Heh, Tricorder said the exact same thing in the other thread =P

Why is it that we get flooded with questions about Radiant 1.5 and vista? Nobody asks about 1.4 and XP.
