I recently installed 7.7.0 on a Windows Server 2003 R2 machine and it crashes regularly, requiring a restart. I've needed to downgrade to back to the "old" server software.
Has anyone else had problems on Win2003?

No problems here. I have the server installed from the Windows installer as well as one running from the Perl code on Windows Server 2003 SP2 (not R2).

Does it crash on its own, just sitting idle, or when you're doing something in particular? Anything in the server.log?

Are you running any 3rd party plugins? If so, disable them and try again. If it's then stable, add the plugins back in gradually and try to determine which one is causing the problem.

No problems for me either. I've been running squeezecentre in all its various incarnations from 7.3 to 7.7 and never had a problem on my Windows 2003 R2 Small Business Server. The server is also running exchange and sharepoint and copes admirably.

I've now uninstalled all plugins and it crashed again at some point over the last couple of days (I can't tell when). The last few days of server log is attached (I have a scan scheduled for 1am each morning). Does this give any clues?

Tried deleting the whole cache folder ? Is this a clean install or upgrade.

Do you run a lot of plugins ? disable all but thr logitech delivered ones.

Here ends my knowledge I never used win2003 server.....

OK I just tried uninstalling, deleting all folders, then re-installing from scratch. This time I got an unhandled win32 exception from the scanner (4488). The last error message in the scanner log was:
"Invalid or corrupt image file(code -4)"
...but this error occurs many times in the log so I don't think it caused the exception.
The server log is below.
Could this be anything to do with the fact that my main music folder is on a NAS device?

Possibly. Where is the database?

The database is on the local Windows 2003 Server. This configuration was never a problem for the last version of Squeezebox Server.

Disable as many of the built-in plugins as you can live without, including UPnP/DLNA. Stop the server, clear the cache folder, cross your fingers, restart.

Pardon my ignorance, but which folder is the cache folder? (I can't see anything of that name in c:\program files\squeezebox)

Go into the web interface, Settings > Information page. Near the bottom of the page it shows the location of several folders. The cache folder contains all of the server's data, including the databases, resized cover art, etc. Looks like your library database is corrupt.

OK I uninstalled, deleted the cache folder (and all folders from previous installs). I then re-installed and scanned my library from scratch - it completed OK. Now a few days later I find that the server has stopped itself again. I attach the log.
This version doesn't stay up for longer than a day at a time on my Windows 2003 Server, which is rendering it un-usable.
Unfortunately I've lost the last pre-LMS release of Squeezebox server, and it seems to be no longer available on the official site. Does anyone have a link for it>?

Older versions are here. If you're going back to 7.6, you may as well install 7.6.2.

Many thanks. I will indeed go back to 7.6.2, as that seemed rock solid on my server.
