Skype & IIS Clash

Juice Podcast Receiver in Windows 7

I used to use Juice Podcast Receiver to get some podcast content.  I haven't been able get it to work in Windows 7.  I found this article and started to follow it.

I right clicked on the program and chose "Trouble Shoot Compability"
I picked XP SP3 and Vista SP2.  I still got and error box that said to look at C:\Program Files\Juice\Juice.exe.log It had the following error several times.

OSError: [Errno 17] File exists: 'C:\\Users\\\\My Documents\\My Received Podcasts'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 4, in ?
  File "iPodderGui.pyc", line 3573, in main
  File "ipodder\configuration.pyc", line 468, in __init__
  File "os.pyc", line 154, in makedirs

I am pretty sure that the Vista SP2 let me start the program.  I then changed to the podcast folder in File\Preferences\General to a folder other than C:\\Users\\\\My Documents\\My Received Podcasts.

It seems to be working now.
