Hi,

Would anyone have a suggestion as to why, on my Win98 machine, the
slimserver seems to keep the msgsvr32 task permanently occupied? As soon
as I kill the 4.2.6 server, CPU usage drops to a few percent. Anything I
could try to detect the cause of the problem?

Thanks!!
Pascal.

I'm running Win98, and noticed that with the Slimp3 player in standby,
the CPU was almost 100% loaded with the MSGSRV32 (32-bit VxD message
server) task. It didn't matter whether I had the server page displayed
or minimised. Once I killed the (4.2.6) server the CPU dropped
immediately back to a few percent.

I've no idea what the msgsrv32 task does for me, but perhaps there's an
obvious suggestion as to what might be wrong!?

Cheers,
Pascal.

Hi Pascal,

I don't know why this would be the case. Try upgrading to the latest
version (5.0.1, available from the Slim Devices web site) and let us
know if the problem improves.

Please tell us about the size of your collection (number of MP3 files). I
just tried to reproduce the problem, but did not have a real music
collection (one single file :-)). No problem so far. May be I'll find some
time connecting it to my fileserver later.
