Hi everyone,

A friend of mine recently bought a SliMP3 unit, but has been unable to
get the SlimServer software running on his PC (P4, WinXP Home). I tried
to help him last night, but I don't use Windows much and wasn't sure
what was going on. The software installed straight away on a Win98
machine he had. On rebooting, the XP machine said that "slimsvc" was
unable to start. I'm thinking that the problem might be a permissions
one, but he was logged in as a user with Administrator rights when we
installed the software.

Can anyone offer a suggestion?
