View Full Version : Launching MusicMagic at startup

Does anyone have a neat solution for this annoying quirk on system start-up? Both SlimServer (as a service) and MusicMagic are set to run when Windows starts up. The problem is that SS gets there first so doesn't detect the presence of MM. I need to log on to the machine and manually restart the SS service once MM has initialised.

Is there a workaround for this? Any thoughts appreciated.

6.1 nightlies should allow you to enable (server settings->pluigns) musicmagic
after slimserver has started up and it will take exiting use settings so you
dont have to suffer through a new rescan.

otherwise, you have to write a .BAT file to delay the startup of slim.exe as a
manual run (not a service).

I found a small shareware program called "apptoservice" that works
well and is fairly easy to setup. It starts mm as a service at boot
and works well with ss. You can find it at http://www.basta.com. a
couple of tips:

- when setting up mm as service, initially set it to 'interact with
desktop.' this way you can make sure the api service is started and do
other troubleshooting (even if you have set the api service in regular
mode, it goes away when run as service and needs to be turned on
again). Once everything is working well, turn off the interact with
desktop - otherwise the mm application always comes up on the desktop,
and if closed the service stops.

- when upgrading ss from one version to another, the musicmagic plugin
may need to be reset within ss. check it in server settings >
plugins. make sure the setting takes. then what works for me is:
stop the ss service. stop the mm service. start the mm service.
start the ss service. now double check server settings to see if 'use
mm' is checked. if so, you should be set.

Thanks for this. I've upgraded to the latest nightly (6.1.0 - trunk - locale: cp1252 from 7 June) which still doesn't seem to pick up the presence of MM if it starts up after SS.

Could someone be kind enough to give some pointers on a .bat file to delay the start up of MM, preferably dependent on some reliable event? I'm afraid I'm not up to this sort of thing.

Much appreciated...

You should try the method I suggested in the earlier post. It does not
require a batch file. It works great and have installed it for at
least 10 people. Works flawlessy after a little intial tinkering -
everything starts on boot in the background, running as system
services. Works on 6.0.x and 6.1.x.

Apologies, Charles, I hadn't realised that running as a service would cure the need to start the two apps in a particular sequence. I'll give it a go as soon as I get the chance.

Many thanks,

Andrew,

I wrote a little 'how-to' for myself and would be happy to share it
with you. Just send me an email off forum to shaboyi (AT) gamil (DOT) com and
I'll send it to you. Mainly it is just the 'apptoservice' commands
that need to be entered once and notes on the 'tinkering' I mentioned.

Seeing as this has come up again, the best solution I have found is to
run both as a service (I'm using the MS srvany.exe method for MM, Google
is your friend). but then using regedit, add a new Multi-string value
under the Slimserver service Key. Name this DependOnService, and then
edit it to hold the name of your MusicMagic service. This way, the
slimserver service won't start until the MM service has started.

I checked the wiki, I think getting it into that format -- for me --
would be a bit too time consuming. If someone was proficeint at it, I
would be happy to send the file on in any format that was best for
creating the wiki post. Just let me know the format and where to send
if this seems like a plan.

That last post did not get much of a reply, so I'll just post the
instructions here in plain text for all to use howerver they wish.
Disclaimer: I have no interest in either of the companies that require
license keys!

If anyone want the instructions in another format, like pdf or rtf,
email me at shaboyi (AT) gmail (DOT) com.

===========
MusicMagic Setup with SlimServer 6.x

These instructions provide steps to install Predixis' MusicMagic (MM)
software as a Windows system service and to automatically integrate it
with SlimServer (SS) on boot. Once setup, MM starts automatically
before SS, and no user interaction is required to integrate the two
programs.

The instructions assume SlimServer (SS) and a SLIMP3/Squeezebox or
Softsqueeze player are installed. The MM plugin does not work
correctly and can not be set up in Slimserver without a player (it
installs but the mixes come up blank).

This is a one time procedure.

A. Install MM

- Install MM and allow it to fully analyze/verify all music before continuing.
- Install license key to allow MM to run the API service
- Do not turn on the API service at this point

B. Install Basta.com's "AppToService" Program (http://www.basta.com)

- Install the program and purchase license key.
- Install key under the AppToService directory with this command:
AppToService /key:xxxxxx (for example: C:\Program Files\Basta
Computing\AppToService>AppToService /key:xxxxxx)

C. Setup MM to Run as a Windows System Service

- Run AppToService from the Windows Program menu. It opens a DOS shell
and shows all the commands. Enter 'q' to quit the menu and at the
command line, enter> AppToService /install "c:/program
files/predixis/musicmagic mixer/musicmagicmixer.exe" /startup:a
/interact:1 (or equivalent, depending on where the MM program is
installed). The AppToService program returns an acknowledgement that
MM was installed as a service. In Windows Computer Management the
service is listed as "ApptoService musicmagicmixer." We'll refer to
it as ATS (MM).
- Note that the "Interact with the Desktop" switch is ON
(/interact:1). This will be turned off from Computer
Management>Services>ATS (MM)>Properties>Logon when everything is
working.
- Go to Computer Management >Services and ensure that the ATS (MM)
service is started. If not, start the service. When started the MM
UI should open up on the desktop because of the "Interact" switch.
- Now turn on the API service in MM (File > Customize Options >
Services). Ignore any MM error message that say can not start API
service, so long as it indicates it is started. In any case, continue
with the instructions.

C. SlimServer Settings

- Open the Web Interface, go to Server Settings > Plugins and make
sure that the MM plugin is checked. Now go to the main Server
Settings page and make sure that "Use MusicMagic" box is checked. If
SlimServer does not recognized MM, that option will not be available;
if not available, follow the next step.
- Double check in MM that the API service is running; next go to
Computer Management and stop both the ATS (MM) and SS services. Now
first start the ATS (MM) service then start the SS service. The order
in which the services are started is very important.
- SS should now recognize MM, as indicated by the mm next to
artists/songs, etc. If not, again make sure that "Use MM" on the main
Server Settings page is checked (sometimes it mysteriously will not
take). Repeat the Service Start + Stop routine if necessary, with
ATS (MM) always started before SS.
- Once SS recognizes MM the procedure is basically complete. Note
that SS will rescan the music library once MM is recognized. Let it
do its thing before testing.
- Test: Reboot computer. On reboot MM should start and the UI appear
on the desktop. Open SS web interface and the mm should appear next
to artists/albums, etc. Create an Instant mix to ensure proper
functioning.
- Now, turn off the Interact with Desktop setting (Computer Management
> Services > AppToService musicmagicmixer > Properties> Logon) by
un-checking "Interact with Desktop."
- Final test: reboot one last time; check SS interface for mm; create
Instant Mix.

There really is no need to purchase the AppToService program. Windows
has its own, free, user-defined service tool, detailed here:

Hmm, also noticed that it says it only applies to Windows NT and 2k, but does not mention XP... I'm having a hard time finding a similar document in MS's KB regarding XP...

HTHI followed these instructions having installed MusicMagic as a service using the MS technique. It all looks fine - MusicMagicMixer.exe is showing up in Task Manager, and the service has started. Additionally the SlimServer service now has a dependency on the MM service showing up, and I've tested the dependency by restarting the MM service, which first forces the SS service to shut down and restart once MM is back up - but MM isn't doing its thing. Not a 'mm' logo in sight. Any ideas where I might start looking for the problem? Can't see anything obvious in the event logs.

Thanks.

I have yet to try the MS method, but assuming it is basically the
same, look in slimserver settings to make sure that 'use music magic'
is checked -- sometimes it is finicky. Also check to make sure that
the the musicmagic API service is running in the instance of
musicmagic that is running as a service.

And if it isn't, you can just start another instance of the MM exe (make
sure you use the same user, if you have the service running as a
different one to your logon), enable the API, close MM, and then restart
the MM service (you might need to explicitly restart the SS service too,
as that'll get stopped because of the dependency).

A note...

Don't forget, that the api has more to do with song analysis and not that much to do with MM"Mixer"... I ask a similar question on the MM forum and found out that MMM does not have a fully "headless version" that runs on API services alone... to get the MM buttons and interfaces on the slim device that gui needs to be open... still doesn't make a whole lot of sence to me... but there you have it... for more check out the MMM forum.

Larry,

You can still run the 'whole thing' as a service, the GUI is just
hidden. Slimserver can still access the API bit that way.

The log will then show the reponses from the API, if any.

Superb - got it all working like a dream. Logging in as the user MM is running as and enabling the API was the key. Thanks for that, I'd never have got it on my own.

Thanks to all for your input in getting this working.

Hey all: SO what is the state o' the art for getting MMM and slim to launch on boot (XP). I'm running SlimServer v.6.1.1 and the latest MMM 1.1.6b. Since this thread is serveral months old I thought I'd see if there was an elegant solution....

I posted about this on the Predixis forums, and one of the guys there says that it _should_ work if you start MMM with a '-slim' parameter on startup. There are lots of details on the site, but sadly I couldn't get it working even with the -slim switch.

-slim means that MMM will expect SB as a player, even if it can't find SS when starting up.

The most elegant solution (for me) remains the one posted here some time ago. The poster provided a detailed set of instructions on how to install MMM as a service, using "AppToService" by Basta software. It only costs $20, and it works like a charm...

I've been running MMM as a service using AppToService in Windows XP and it works really well, except that I've run into a problem after adding new music to my library. Slimserver (6.2) doesn't seem to pick up the newly analysed songs (though they are definitely there in the MMM GUI), and reverts to the old MMM database (it shows the new songs, but not the mm symbol next to it). Hopefully I don't need to repeat the whole installation cycle again - can anyone suggest how to get Slimserver picking up the new songs?

Just updating the thread with current info on how to install the MMM process.

I have this working ...

Setup the MM Service as per the post above.
Deleted the SlimServer Tray Icon from my startup folder.
Set both SlimServer & MM Services to 'Manual' in the Services Panel.
Added to my start batch file the commands:


net start "Predixis MusicMagic Server"
..
... my other startup commands go in here ...
..
net start "SlimServer"

OK, I've just MIP Server up and running (following your instructions FairyLiquidizer - thanks!).

One question: HOw do I get the server or slim to obey settings I have in MusicMixer, such as "don't include songs which aren't enabled in mixes".

THe mixes I'm getting include tracks from my library I don't want included in in mixes.

In the SS web ui, go to Settings, MusicMagic. The top option is something like "Choose to give each player access to the musicmagic mix settings before generating a mix."

Set this to Yes.

Remove any player chosen settings in the boxes below (as they override the server settings and remain, until they are changed again from the player.

You may need to restart both MM and Slimserver (in that order) for it to take effect.
