I've been happily using an SB since last January, but yesterday it suddenly stopped when I asked the SB to browse my Music Folder. <Loading Music Folder> message froze on the SB screen. On my PC, when I click on the shortcut for SlimServer or on the program name in the SlimServer folder nothing happens.

I uninstalled the software on my PC, downloaded v.6.5.2, and tried to install it, but I got the following error message:

<C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server\slim.exe
An error occurred while trying to replace the existing file.
DeleteFile failed; code 5.
Access is denied.>

Help, please!

First off, I think it was premature to uninstall the software.

Probably you should simply have tried stopping and then restarting the SlimServer service. That probably would have gotten things rolling again.
