[App_rpt-users] Another webtranceiver oddity

Just for fun and grins, on my Windows 7 desktop that doesn't work
properly with Webtranceiver, I launched Oracle's VM Virtual Box and
opened a virtual machine running Linux Mint version 12. Opened Firefox
under Linux , logged into my Allstar Node and instantly got the audio
feedback saying I was connected. I then logged in with my node password
and got audio confirmation that I was logged in. I can enter macro
commands to change frequencies and that works ok BUT the PTT button
doesn't key the transmitter. 90% there in having a working node from
the new PC even if I'm having to use a virtual machine to do it.
The virtual machine passes all I/O down to the Windows system resources
then out to the network to control my node which leads me to wonder if
it isn't some issue between various browsers and the java code in
webtranceiver? I've tried Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Google
Chrome and even Safari.
Being a little more methodical today, it appears that all of the
browsers under Win7 will actually log in to the node. The macros change
frequencies and other parameters ok, you just don't get any audio either
from the radio or system acknowledging you logged in, nor do you hear
audio from the radio even if you unsquelch it. The PTT does not work
under any browser on my new PC.
What might be a clue is that under Linux, it is probably using a
different version of the Java interpreter, at least the audio passes
under that version although the transmit button (PTT) does not.
Wonder if anyone has Windows 7 professional version that does XP
emulation and try running a browser under that and see if webtranceiver
will work under xp emulation? I have the home version and can't see
laying out another 80 to upgrade to the pro version just to get XP
