The same thing was happening with me, although, I haven't really started doing much in FCE because I'm still in the learning process, but, I couldn't open the application anywhere on the computer. I ended up going to troubleshooting basics and deleted user preferences in FCE, and now it is opening and back to it's set up place. It did say that it would not impact project files by doing this.
1. in finder/ go to /library/preferences
2. Remove the "com.apple.finalcutexpress.plist" file from the preferences folder
3. remove the "final cute express user data" folder from the preferences folder
that was it.
I'm having the same problem. This doesn't seem to fix it. I installed Final Cut Express HD on my laptop when i bought it just a few weeks ago. It worked once, and now it won't finish loading.
I looked in the Preferences folder, but did not see the files listed in "mads21" post.
Any other suggestions as to why FCP won't load on my new computer? All updates have been installed.
Same problem with a iMac G5 PowerPC 2GB ram 1.8 Mhz so all specs say it should run.
I even asked the Apple Store employee if this would run on a iMac G5.
Hey Apple Now what.
I've done everything stated to do.
Still no good.

I also had the same problem after purchesing FCE and using it for a few hours and then finding I needed to upgade to the newer version 4.01. However something went wrong during the update and I coulden't open the application afterwards. After a two hour sesion with apple support the verdict was a corrupt OSX.4.11. After making a clon of the OS I formatted the HD and did a new installation of OSX.5.6, after that FCE worked again.
