I'm using IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158. Clicking the reset
button within the softsqueeze seems to have made things worse ... it doesn't
launch on the second try anymore. I have to keep retrying until it works.
Using 'open in new window' on the link seems to work better than just left
clicking, but it still doesn't fire up on the first try. Why is it looking
for the jnlp file in temporary internet files? Launching with firefox seems
to work better, at least at a glance. I'm just very much in the habit of
launching slimserver.exe from quick launch and going from there. Let me
know if you want anymore info on this. Thanks.

This is a problem with how Internet Explorer opens files with an
external application (in this case Java Web Start). The
softsqueeze.jnlp file is stored in the temporary internet files, and
Java Web Start is launched pointing at this file. Before Java has
started IE decides that the file has expired it's cache lifetime and
deletes the file. Sometimes Java loads the files before it is deleted,
but other times the file is missing.

I have been meaning to submit a slimserver patch to fix this, but have
not had enough time to look at it yet. Maybe you could file a bug to
make sure this does not get lost.
