I've posted on the MusicIP forum as well but figure i might get a quicker
answer here - i want to run music ip as a service with slimserver and cant
find any instructions on how to do so.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

You need a third party app, but it's only a few dollars (and well worth it IMHO).

I followed the instructions in this thread without any probs:

I think things have moved on with the latest version of MMM/MusicIP.

I found this page linked from the slim wiki on getting it running as a
service on linux:
http://music.predixis.com/6_develop_http.html

that page doesn't seem to be linked from anywhere on the music iP site at
the moment.

Anyway, i've got it running now and it seems to work. I'm wondering about
boot order as i don't seem to be able to change priorities in the windows
services app.

That's why I suggested you look at the thread. Middle of the second page. I have only been able to get the priorities right by using ApptoService, but others may be able to help you with getting it working via the default Windows services panel.
