I just upgraded to the newest version/firmware and now my library will not rescan files. It only found 9 out of several hundred albums etc. Any ideas what is wrong?

I'm running Vista Ultimate.

Thanks in advance.

Well I'm running SlimServer Version: 6.5.2 - 12568 - Windows Vista. I'm not sure what you mean by detailing my environment (sorry, I don't post here often). Can you tell me specifically what else I can post that will help someone figure out the issue?

Thanks.

What antivirus / software firewall are you using - the inbuilt Vista one or a third party one like Zone Alarm?

Have you tried adding an exception for scanner.exe (in the Slimserver directory)?

I just upgraded to the newest version/firmwar

The newest version is 6.5.4 not 6.5.2 and there were some scanner fixes in 6.5.2 and 6.5.3.

you might want to try the latest available windows beta:

and how about your machine specs, where your music is located, etc...

Needless to say I did something wrong with my original download as I didn't even notice that I wasn't using the latest version even though that's what I downloaded and installed. I'm going to re-install 6.5.4 and see what happens. Very bizarre. Thanks for all your help so far.

I reinstalled the newest version and everything worked perfectly. Another case of user error on my part. Thanks everyone for steering me in the right direction.
