Now I have no idea!
Confirmation from any other users that the plugin works (or doesn't) on
Win2000 would be a start.

Are SlimServer and iTunes running as the same user?
Weird that iTunes comes up sometimes but not others.
I get iTunes crashes occasionally but they are usually detected and
don't crash SlimServer (although they can cause long pauses)
I have never seen a 'no data' alert.

I'm not running slimserver as a service - I'm running
it from a DOS prompt.

When the plugin attempts to call iTunes, sometimes it
comes up, sometimes not, but it always pops up a
Windows ALERT window saying "The document contains no

I had always had iTunes already running before when I
tried this, so I never saw this alert until now.
