I am having the same problems as zanbo in getting the server to start
without a password as it assumes no password means do not run at
startup. Anyone have any ideas?

Also, is there a way to have the server running as a system service
without having to log on, as in previous versions?

Thanks!
Craig.

Try this before you downgrade:

We'll be fixing this in the next release.

In the mean time, you can install the service from the command line:

cd C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server

slimsvc.exe -install auto
net start slimsvc

Should do it. It will be running under the System account. If you
want to run it under another account, open Control Panels ->
Administrative Tools -> Services
and find SlimServer. Then right-click and get properties and edit the
Log On tab.
