    Modules on MSWIN.

    How can I get Plugins to work on Microsoft Windows?

    I have downloaded several of those recommended on the Slim website,
    but can't get any of them to work.

    I install the Perl modules in the Plugins directory; The modules show
    up fine in the Slimserver application and I can select add to "activate"
    the module.

    However when I go to my remote conrol the only things visible under the
    Plugins menu are the two or three pre-installed plugins that come with
    the Slimserver.

    None of the new modules show up via the remote control.

    Robin.

    Try opening a Command Prompt session, run slim.exe (default location: c:\program
    files\slimserver\server\slim.exe) with the debug option --d_plugins. From
    startup, you will see messages related to the Plugins and why any of them might
    not be loading. Some of the added modules that plugins require, also require
    more modules. The debug messages will point those out.

    cheers,
