This is what works for me:

1). Download the nightly zip file and unzip it to make sure you have a good
2). Do not uninstall 5.1.5. I never did and my setup works perfectly.
3). Assuming that you installed Slimserver as a "Service", from a command
prompt, execute this command: net stop slimsvc and wait for the service to
4). Open windows explorer and navigate to the C:\Program Files\SlimServer
folder and delete all the files and subdirectories therein, but don't delete
the SlimServer folder. Alternately, you can rename the C:\Program
Files\SlimServer to C:\Program Files\SlimServer.org or something and create
a new SlimServer folder under Program Files.
5). Edit the registry: Start->Run->Regedit.exe; navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\slimsvc and make sure
the entry for the "ImagePath" key is "C:\Program
Files\SlimServer\server\slim.exe" (the service executable has changed for
this version.)
6). Move all the unzipped files from the nightly build to the C:\Program
Files\SlimServer folder.
7). Make any custom edits to C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server\convert.conf
you need to (e.g. enable the alternate FLAC commands to support cuesheets.)
8). From a command prompt again, execute the command "Net start slimsvc" and
wait for the service to start.
9). Fire up the web interface at go through the
server and squeezebox setup pages. Once you set your music folder and
perform a rescan, you should be good to go.
