Thanks for responding...

I'm using the following directory.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Music


which is the same as for 5.0.1 Interesting, may not
be relevant, but when I reinstall 5.0.1 it retains the
original directory settings but when I install 5.0.3
it defaults to iTunes (yes I do have the itunes xml in
that directory).

I can recreate this over and over again, simply
uninstall 5.0.1 and install 5.0.3 and back to 5.0.1.
5.0.3 doesn't work, 5.0.1 does every time.

Thoughts....is there any logging that I can turn on to
help debug?

....the slimsvc will not work on either version though!

HI James,

5.0.3 does try harder to turn on iTunes, but you should be able to turn
it off.

I suggest starting the slim.exe from the command line and with the
following options:

slim.exe --d_scan --d_info

Then try disabling itunes and let us know what the output is towards
the end.
