    help me uninstall softsqueeze and replace with squeezelite

    having difficulty uninstalling softsqueeze 3.9b2. Error message says no JVM found on system.
    Please point EXEC4_java_home to a JRE.

    Ultimately, I'd like to replace softsqueeze with squeezelite. Any help appreciated!

    Prior to posting my Q, I downloaded java. I could not find the file with "home" in the name referenced above.

    To uninstall Softsqueeze - delete the softsqueeze jar file unless you are using a AWS but I think that is unlikely since Java is not working for you.

    I think EXEC4_java_home is an environment variable which is specific to your system and it should be setup as part of the JRE installation so I think you have a faulty JRE installation.

    What system are you using ?
    Have you run Softsqueeze before ?

    Softsqueeze may not be the best choice (not been updated for a while) but it depends on your system. Squeezelite is headless - did you want a headless player ?

    I have LMS 3.7.7 installed on a win7 desktop PC. The music files are stored on an USB external HDD.
    Softsqueeze is installed on this PC because i used to stream to an SB Touch which is no longer in the system.

    I have recently purchased a NAD D 7050 digital amp/streamer, which is in a different room than the PC.
    I want to control the music library from my iPad, and am considering iPeng 7 or squeezepad for this.
    I want to stream my wav files from the Win7 PC to my iPad and, in turn, stream the wav files to the NAD D 7050 via airplay. The NAD is an airplay receiver. So I thought I would remove softsqueeze and install squeezelite. Does this make sense, or is there a better way to accomplish this? Thank you

    Seems like a very complicated solution. Would DLNA from PC to NAD with DLNA control point on Ipad not be simpler ?

    Squeezelite has better support of different audio interface which might be useful to physically connect NAD to PC.

    Do you have any suggestions on a good UPNP/DLNA control app that supports gapless playback (iPad) and DLNA server software? I have never used either.
    One hesitation I have is that most of these DLNA servers are subscription based. I have read that using JRMC and JRemote on the iPad supports gapless playback unlike PlugPlayer.

    I cannot recommend any DLNA stuff but you should try Whitebear ( http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...r-v2-1-Updated ) which is a DLNA server for LMS on Windows so at least you will have onl;y one library and Whitebear does transcoding. I think you will still a control point for Ipad but there a number of free apps you can try.

    No idea about gapless but I think gapless on DLNA may not be standard. I think question about squeezelite player should be asked on the squeezelite thread ( http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...ux-(alsa-only) title is not correct as squeezelite is also on Windows) as you'll get a better answer than on a "uninstall softsqueeze" thread. Squeezelite supports gapless on Linux and I expect also on Windows.

    Why are asking about Plugplayer when you are using Windows and a NAD ?

    LMS 3.7.7 ?

    Didnt you think that that information is one of these i asking about?
    Did you know there is Win7 in 32 AND 64 Bit - the 64 Bit Java Client doesnt add a systemvariable named javahome anymore. So it seems you running 7 /64 bit.

    So if you wanna help take yourself a bit more time to ask questions or in another words - why should i put more time in answering questions than the owner for asking the question?

    btw. we are miles away with these dnla Stuff than the threadtitle would expect.

    I think you can cut the guy a little slack. He is trying to integrate his new Airplay/DLNA compatible device into a LMS environment.
    The original solution led him down a blind alley of Java which started the thread - I reckon the solve the underlying need not the presented symptom.

    I think Whitebear with LMS may work better with the NAD rather than the complicated Airplay based solution.
