Try looking at the file error-log in your User Settings Directory, which 
is ~/.wingide4 on Linux or OS X and usually either c:\Documents and 
Settings\${username}\Application Data\Wing IDE 4 or 
c:\Users\${username}\AppData\Roaming\Wing IDE 4 on Windows (or similar 
localized directory).

You can send this to us if you can't figure it out.

Or, you can start Wing with "wing4.1 --verbose" on Linux, 
"/Applications/Wing IDE.app/Contents/MacOS/wing --verbose" on OS X, or 
use console_wing.exe on Windows.
