Hey Francois,

What are the specs on the box and which version of Vista is it? For what
it's worth, I just tried on my Vista64 Home Premium with 4GB of RAM ...
started up default Houdini, drop in sphere, render with View Mantra ... took
about 2 seconds to draw up mplay ... took another second to finish render.
