    Problems running SoftSqueeze on Vista

    I'm trying to run SoftSqueeze 3.5 on Windows Vista Ultimate with Java 1.6. My SlimServer is running fine on the same machine, because I have connected my Squeezebox to it, and it is working just fine. But when I try to play through SoftSqueeze, what seems to happen is that there is a very long delay (1-2 minutes) before anything starts playing, and then only brief clips of the song are played with gaps between.

    Does anyone have advice or experience with this issue?

    Anyone else have a problem with Vista and Softsqueeze?
    I'm running the latest SC7 and running Softsqueeze from there.
    When I press right or up or down or left on the softsqueeze remote, nothing happens. I have to repeatedly hit the key and then at some random point, it gets processed.

    I haven't had a working softsqueeze on my Vista Box since going to SC 7 more than a month ago.
