One Magpie reference indicates that Magpie is:

"MAGpie 2.0.2 is a Java2 application which runs on Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP and on Mac OSX."

Is it usable on Vista?

I'm able to load the software, load captions, and load a media file, but playback is wonky. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, and lit incense....no playback. I do see that the Quicktime player is loading - in the "debug" version window I can see the GRINS fails but QT doesn't. That's expected because I didn't load the GRINS thing.

Whenever I attempt to begin playback, Magpie just stops responding...and Windows reports an Application error 1002

The program java.exe version stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Problem Reports and Solutions control panel. Process ID: 1304 Start Time: 01c88882ad3298ec Termination Time: 13

So back to square one...does anyone know if Magpie is usable on a Vista system?
