Make a copy of flac.exe from your flac installation and place it your
system PATH. Then restart your server.

On NT/XP-type systems, one place that should work is WINNT\system32.

I found that the easiest thing to do was to put the flac.exe
program in C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server (assumes default
installation).

This way Slimserver can see it, and if you later decide to
remove it you don't have to go hunting in windows system
folders.
