Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get MusicMagic and Slimserver
to work with out manual intervention on the XP platform?

This is what I tried: Run SimServer (3/11/05 nightlie) as a service,
and put MusicMagic in the Startup program group. On boot MusicMagic
started fine and so did SlimServer, but SlimServer did not recognize
MusicMagic.

I have to restart SlimServer to get it to work. So I assume
MusicMagic must be running before SlimServer starts. But Musicmagic,
as far as I know, can not be set to run as a service.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might accomplish this
without any manual intervention?

You could write a batch file that runs on startup which would launch
musicmagic first, then introduce a delay, and launch slimserver. Or you
could use girder to monitor if musicmagic's running, then once it's running
it could launch slimserver.

With MusicMagic, you should be able to get slimserver to recognise it even after
teh server is running. However, it does take a little bit of work. Go into
server settings->plugins and you will see MusicMagic checkbox is unchecked.
Checking it and clicking change will tell teh server to attempt to try
musicmagic again. If it is found this time, the server will turn on the
integration.
