View Full Version : Slim Server crashes on Windows startup

I'm using SlimServer 6.0.2, and it's set to start when Windows starts. When it tries to initialize, it crashes. When I then try to start it manually, it comes up fine.

The information in the Windows event log is not very illuminating:
> Faulting application slim.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module
> unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x0012e838.

Any ideas?

Tom

Is this a new installation? Try removing everything SlimServer related and
re-install. But you might want to wait another day as SlimServer 6.1 is
due out very soon.

What you could do in the meantime is to check the access rights. What user
is the service running under?

Thanks Michael -- that was exactly it.

I had previously had my music library in a common folder with a symbolic link to Windows' My Music folder. After replacing a failed hard drive last week, I restored the music into a subdirectory under My Music, which the local system account can't access.

Configuring the service to log on with my account fixes the problem.
