I've installed slimserver as a windows service and now iTunes doesn't show up in the server options. It worked fine when starting the server manually. I'm using slimserver 5.0 and Windows XP home. Can anyone provide a suggestion?

Thanks

Hi Wayne,

This is due to the fact that the Windows service runs as the System
account and your iTunes library is available as your account. To
change the service go to:

Control Panels -> Administrative Tools -> Services

Find slimsvc in the list. Double click to get properties.

Click the Log On tab and change it to log in as your account with your
password.

(Note: Windows security prevents services from running on users who
don't have passwords, so if your account doesn't have a password,
you'll need to add one.)
