I wanted to check out some CardSpace stuff today, so I bit the bullet and installed IE7 RC1.  In the short space of time I played with it, it looks pretty good.  However, as soon as it was installed, my Rhapsody client started crashing on startup.  Bummer.  The Rhapsody client hosts IE to do its “Music Guide” stuff, so I wasn’t really surprised that it didn’t handle the change well.  I’m pretty addicted to Rhapsody at work, since I can listen to just about anything I might want to. (Today it’s been a bunch of alt country stuff, Neko Case, The Sadies, Whiskeytown, Be Good Tanyas…yesterday was largely a Rage Against the Machine/The Prodigy kinda day.)

Apparently, this is a known problem, and Real says tough rocks.  I don’t blame them.  It’s what I’d tell me.  Luckily, some crafty bugger in the Real support forum mentioned that it worked for him if he cleared his IE cache before starting Rhapsody. 

Son-of-a-gun, that worked.  We’ll see how long it lasts…
