View Full Version : Running Squeezebox on other program ?

2007-03-13, 08:28
Is it possible to run SB3 with another program ?

I'm so lack of Slimserver that anything else would do. I've had problems on and off the whole time.

Just got a new computer and installed it first thing. It worked great for 3 days. Now It's just not starting anymore. It says starting, but then it gets dark again (in the little slimtray icon). Also the page cannot be found when opening up...:(

Running XP pro and latest stable of SS.

No you must use SlimServer or Squeeze Network.

You can email support at slimdevices dot com for help getting SlimServer running. Or try this:

* Click Start
* Click Run
* Type in: (make sure to include the quotes)

"C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server\slim.exe" -remove

* Hit enter
* Next, type in: (again, make sure to include the quotes)

"C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server\slim.exe" -install

* Hit enter
* Lastly, reboot your computer

Have you installed WMP 10 - if so then it may be using port 9000 and stopping Slimserver.

No, but WMP 11...

I've removed everything and reinstalled the last nightly build. Now it says Slimserver running all the time, but I can't open up slimserver in explorer. "Site cannot be found..."

Also I can't stop slimserver either. Seems like it's stuck in that mode somehow.

WMP 11 is what I should have said.

How do you know Slimserver is running ? If you are using SlimTray then try Windows Task manager instead. Open Windows Task manager and check if there is a "Slim.exe" and a "MYSQLD.exe" running ?

Well, I think I found a solution.
Removed it once more and this time I installed the stable version. Seems to be working now, but I haven't tried starting up WMP yet :/

How do I keep my old favoritestations? I've copied slimserver.pref, but it seems like it gets overwrited by the SB cause all favorites disappears...
