    Problem installing softsqueeze 2.3

    I recently downloaded softsqueeze 2.3 from sourceforge. (I assume it is not yet integrated into any of the nightly builds?) It worked fine at home, and cleaned up FLAC gapless very nicely. But at the office I am getting an installation error.

    I see the message, "softsqueeze is preparing the install4j wizard," and the progress bar fills up to about two blocks from full. Then it hangs for a minute or so, then says:

    install4j Wizard

    The Java(TM) VM could not be started. Please restart the installation.You may use the parameter "/manual" to download or manually select a different VM.

    and here's the log file that it generates:

    What version were you using prior to trying 2.3? You were having trouble with gapless FLAC playback?

    I believe I was using 2.2

    What do you mean you had trouble with gapless FLAC playback? I tend to use crossfade so I have not experienced any trouble.

    Re: Problem installing softsqueeze 2.3

    It looks like your Java installation may be broken, it might be worth
    trying to reinstall Java or trying the
    softsqueeze_windows_with_jre_2_3.exe download from sourceforge.
