i installed 1.7 of Music IP yesterday, analyzed a few new albums, closed
it, cleared the Slimserver cache and set it to rescan. Slimserver now won't
start - i've tried reinstalling it but the problem is the same - slimserver
shows as 'starting' in the system tray but doesnt get any further.

Anyone experiencing similar? Resoloution?

Windows XP running on the server.

I can't imagine a problem with the two - I've been running MIP 1.7 and
SlimServer 6.5 quite happily on my XP laptop. Have you tried running
slimserver _without_ MIP, from the command line? It should give you some
information why it crashes (if it does).

I've rolled back to before i installed 1.7 of music IP and slimserver will
start now but i can't access the web interface (throws up a blank page) but
the Squeezeboxes and softsqueeze are online.

The other thing i've changed in the last week is the latest iTunes.

I have a problem with 6.5 (on XP MCE) and MusicIP 1.7. MusicIP mixes
work fine on their own and Slimserver works fine for it's normal stuff.
I can even send a mixed list from IP to SS. However, when I try to mix
through the SlimServer web interface, Slim reports that the library is
still scanning (no mix). I don't get the "still scanning" message when
I, say, list artists.

I have tried a full library rescan but no change.

It looks like some problem in this area, no?

A little bit more info, when I run a command line scan (see below), it
crashes.

Now I have hit the limit of my diagnostic skills :-(

Are you running MIP as a service or standalone ? If so, how did you set it up to run as a service ?

I'm running MIP 1.7 and XP with no problems (and have been for a bit) but no Itunes here.
