Now home, I tried Einstein again (the EinsteinPlatform2007.7.6-MSWindows.msi version from SourceForge). I used the stock settings,except for selecting my ROM file and the flash file location.
You can see a screenshot of my settings here:
When I hit "start" it disappears without feedback. I believe the process ends too, since Windows has no trouble / complaint when starting it up again from the Start menu.
I looked up the build instructions and can only find them for Cygwin on Windows. I might try that next--opinions welcome on whether or not that's a good idea!

This is very helpful--thanks so much for taking the
time to help me make this work. I'm traveling and (foolishly) I
uninstalled Einstein last week, and my ROM files are on a computer back
at home. They're pulled from my Newton 2100 and did work on previous
iterations of Einstein for Windows (on Windows XP) and on Einstein for
Mac and for Android. I recall making sure the appropriate ROM type was
selected in the interface, but I could always be misremembering! Once
I'm home (Monday) I'll try that again, and I'll report back with exactly
how it fails (if indeed I set the settings correctly and it does still
fail). Thanks again, so much, for this really helpful reply!

I'm assuming that you installed Einstein on your Windows machine by
downlading EinsteinPlatform2007.7.6-MSWindows.msi and installing it.
Is this assumption correct? In case it is: Are you getting the Einstein
Platform Settings window after starting Einstein from Windows? If you are:
What are the settings, and what happens after you click on "Start"?
Be aware that once you see the Einstein Platform Settings window, you must
choose the ROM file by tapping the upper right-hand button. It is not
sufficient to have the ROM file in the right folder. If you use the
717006.rom file, the Machine setting should be MP2X00 US.
