I am a long-time customer, currently own 4 Squeezeboxes. I have been a fan of Slimdevices and recommended these products to many friends and family.
With 7.2, I have found my significant investment unusable. The bugs and lack of communication about the bugs is absolutely disgraceful. Scanner crashes and inability for Squeezecenter to restart reliably have pretty much eliminated our use of our Squeezeboxes.
I am running the current, updated version of Windows XP, on a Dell, using ITunes as my library. That is the very definition of the most common setup used in the United States. To release software with such glaring, critical bugs and not do anything about it is just inexcusable.
When will Slimdevices be releasing fixes? Do not suggest I review my ITunes libraries to search for filetypes this release is suddenly choking on. That's not my job -- that's Slimdevices job.

Disgusted with 7.2

if you said "profoundly dissatisfied" rather than "disgusted" you might find more sympathy from forum contributors. Just a thoughtSqbxSvr Running on MacMini Server

Scanner crashes are often caused by your antivirus - what does the scanner.log say? Post up the error messages and we may be able to narrow the problem down for you. Settings/Status
The other thing is that you can revert to an earlier version of SC or even Slimserver at anytime. Sounds like it would be a good option for you just at the moment.

As has been said, be specific or no one can help. I ran 7.2 on XP for a while (although I don't anymore) and never had any issues. Help us to help you

But perhaps not for customers of Slimdevices who are well aware of the limitations (DRM) and lock-in of Apple's offerings.

Absolutely no issues with SC starting up with computer, scans seem fine.
I believe SC had numerous issues with anti-virus programs as it was a completely different program than the old SS. I know my anti-virus threw up a couple warnings, but it got over it.
I bring this up to suggest you may want to temporarily disable or turn off your anti-virus program and firewall, then re-boot everything, try re-scanning again. Disconnect your router from the internet if security concerns you with no anti-virus or firewall running.
Worth a shot.
