Well I had java installed on Vista 64 but the JVM would not start. Setting TUX on XP SP2 compatibility mode solved the problem.

Not sure what was the problem why it did not work straight away but its OK now.

Cheers! :-)

> JVM would not start
Are you sure it's JVM and not tuxguitar ??

I really don't have idea about Vista and less aboutvista 64..
But if it's 64bit and not a JVM problem, so maybe the problem is SWT.
tuxguitar is written in java, but it uses native libraries from SWT.
windows release of tuxguitar is distributed with SWT 32bit
So maybe it's the reason of your problem.

JVM means Java Virtual Machine..
"missing" JVM ( it don't seems to be same problem as other users posted here )

It should means, that you don't have Java installed.
so you need to install java to solve the problem.
