I've not had a problem with WinVice 1.15, 1.19, or 2.3 (the 64 bit version yay!)
I even have had the 1.19 version with tcpser, Image 1.2a setup bundle, (I believe put together by Mr. Brain) up and running without a hitch.
Are you Attaching, the .d64 then typing LOAD"*",8?
or are you Autostarting an image?
