Just clearify:
When the player gives the message "Lost contact with ....." and
simultaneously the web log file (on computer) "cant find the page" - is that
not a craxh?

"may have gotten caught up in a process for longer than you wanted?" I
have set network - timeout to 300 seconds.
What more should I do to get version 6.xxx running as I have written about

Kind Regards
Tore Johnsson

Windows will keep those events around until you delete them, or the log
grows
past the limit in size (quite large). I would guess that if there is
nothing
in the viewer related to Slimserver, then it may not have crashed. instead,
it
may have gotten caught up in a process for longer than you wanted?

I usually suggest running from a command line:

start->run
C:\program files\slimserver\server\slim.exe

-kdf

No, this is most probably a plugin you've activated _after_ the server
start, or simple a false written address. On the browser you'd receive
something like "page not found"

That might be the problem: the timeout defines the time the process should
try to finish its task. During this period other tasks will wait for the
first to finish. If you define 300 seconds, the other tasks will have to
wait up to 5 minutes - which will cause the music to stop, the player to
lose contact to the server and the display to go blank. Maybe it has not
even crashed but would work again after 5 minutes.

Reduce the timeout to 15-30 seconds and try again.

As kdf said try running the server from the command line. It would print
error messages. Open a command line and enter
C:\program files\slimserver\server\slim.exe
