Is there anyone out there that knows why Vista and the Shoutcast encoder plugin for dj'ing with winamp just do not seem to get along? The moment I turn Shoutcast on, my CPU usage goes through the roof. With Vista, Shoutcast will not save all the settings and one has to remember to change them each time.

Try to separate the question from the rant, it would make it more clear. – Gnoupi Aug 31 '09 at 15:14
It looks like there's no true question here. Shoutcast doesn't support Vista or Win7, only 98 - XP. Although it's interesting to see that they'll still support Windows 98 but not Vista. Judging from that alone, I wouldn't expect any quick results. – Will Eddins Aug 31 '09 at 15:16

Have you tried running shoutcast as Administrator? (Right-click and "Run as Administrator").

Another thing to try is running it in Windows XP compatability mode. (Right-click the application, properties, Compatibility tab)
