Hello :)

I'm wondering if its possible to set up SlimServer's music folder on a different network computer. What im trying to do, is i have my Music on my desktop computer, and SlimServer software on my server computer. I tried to specify the Music Folder: "\\oysteinq\Music", but endless to say, got an error saying:

"Oops - "\\oysteinq\Music" doesn't seem to be a valid directory. Try again."

Perhaps there's another trigger or solution for it? :)

Windows server? You'll need to run the SlimServer service under a user account to be able to access network shares.

If you say A. You have to tell B, mate.

Just give me a better explanation, and i'll probably figure it out. Just didn't quite understand what you ment.

Which operating system? In XP, get to Services by either

Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Services

or

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services

or

Start > Run and type in 'services.msc'

Find the 'SlimServer' service, double-click, and go to the 'Log On' tab. Change the account from 'Local System' to a user account on your computer and enter the password, if any. You may want to create a user account used solely for SlimServer.
