Hi

Having insalled SoftSqueeze 2.0a11, when I run it I get a message saying
"You do not have the 'Java MP3 Plugin' installed .... etc", and helpfully
pointing me to a website to get it.

Only problem is, having downloaded javamp3-1_0.exe, the installation doesn't
progess beyond choosing an install directory (where it just loops).

Is it just me? To be honest I'm thinking about jacking the whole thing in
and putting an LP on my LP12 ...

PS. Just to recap, the other problems I have is that Slimserver V6.0b1
crashes when connecting to SoftSqueeze, and that Slimserver fails on
boot-startup. OS is FC3.

I had this problem when first installing the Java MP3 Plugin from Sun.
It seems to be a problem with their installer not a problem with
SoftSqueeze or Slimserver. I found that if I chose another directory
other then the one is it trying to create the install proceeds without a
problem. I think in the end I just moved up one directory to the main
JRE folder and let it install it there. As long as Windows and JRE know
where it was installed even if it was not the default location,
SoftSqueeze can find and utilize it.

As a side note the version of Softsqueeze shipped with SlimServer 6.0b1
(SoftSqueeze 2.0a11) doesn't work with the Java MP3 plugin. If that is
a feature that you are looking to use it has been fixed in the 3-14-05
Nightly and is updated to include SoftSqueeze 2.0a12.

No, your not the only person who is having this problem. The Java MP3
Plugin is optional (you will get better performance with it), so you do
not have to install it. You can also install it using the instructions
