Juice player tastes Sour on Windows 7

Juice 2.2 player has issues launching showing a juice.exe.log problem.

You can first try this:

Originally documented for Vista. This solution works on my Win7 64bit box.

Here’s how to make Juice 2.2 work in Windows 7:

1.Download, install, then browse to the installation folder
2.Change the EXE compatibility mode to Windows XP SP2 [right-click the executable, flip to the Compatibility tab, place a checkmark in the 'Run this program in compatibility mode', then press the OK button]
3.Open Ipodder.cfg with Notepad and change the output directory from “My Documents” to “Documents” - which is found under C:\Users\username\appdata\Roaming\iPodder [by default]
4.Launch Juice


The Compatibility tab didn't show the Juice application so I renamed Juice to Juice.exe which allowed me to right click this and run test compatibility. At that point choose XP service pak 2 mode.

Then everything will run fine.

Thank you for this informative post. Just got a new computer with Windows 7 after having my old computer for about 10 years.
You'd think the developers would update it so it would work in Windows 7 with out problems But its free so I can't complain.
