    Jivelite for Windows

    I've put together a windows version of Triode's excellent Jivelite controller.

    0.1-833e2be - 20170308

    Changes

    See the commit history.

    Download

    Jivelite for Windows is available from my LMS client builds repository on sourceforge.
    Click the link in my signature and navigate to jivelite->windows.

    Installation

    There is no installer for Jivelite for Windows and it does not create any registry entries.
    Just extract the zipfile into any folder, all files are placed in a subfolder called Jivelite

    If you've installed any earlier builds, you should delete the current Jivelite folder before unzipping a new build.

    Running

    Double click the jivelite.exe program in the Jivelite folder or create a shortcut to it on your desktop.

    The VU and spectrum Now Playing screens are not available on the Windows version of jivelite. Only Linux is supported and only then when running squeezelite on the same system as Jivelite.

    Troubleshooting

    If you're computer has multiple active network interfaces, for example wireless and vpn connections, and after you've completed the initial setup, jivelite returns from Scanning for Players without finding one, try this.

    After Scanning for Players fails, click and hold the left arrow button to the left of Choose Player, near the top.

    Click Settings->Advanced->Networking->Remote Libraries->Add New Library.

    Enter the IP address of your LMS server and click Done->Connect to this library.

    At this point if you can't connect to the library Quit jivelite and restart it.

    Jivelite should connect to your library right away.

    Source

    The changes required to build my windows and osx packages are available on github.

    I can report that my Microsoft multimedia keyboard's play and pause controls also work if Jivelite is in focus. I haven't tried Next & Back but I will. I have the player that I am controlling on fixed volume so in my case the volume controls don't work but they do on Squeeze Play at a remote site.

    Yes, they should be as I only made a few changes to get jivelite to compile for windows and none of the changes involved keyboard shortcut handling.

    How doesn't it work?

    I've had reports from testers that it works with windows 8.1.

    I don't have access to that version of windows.

    It doesn't connect to my LMS, even when setting the IP, as detailed in your opening post. I'm currently listening to music through a wandboard with SOA, a Touch, a Pi with piCorePlayer, an Android tablet + phone (OrangeSqueeze + Squeezeplayer), an iPad (Squeezepad) and a windows 8.1 PC using Squeezelite, so I'm quite certain that LMS is reachable
    I must note however that I had a similar experience yesterday with a newly downloaded build of your Squeezeplay, but that one was even stranger: it played music quite well, but I couldn't use the control interface, as it told me it couldn't connect to the server. This was on a different PC as today's tentative with JiveLite, same OS, 64-bit though, all patched to the latest level.

    Works but...

    This works on Win 8.1 32bit on a Windows Tablet (Dell Venue Pro 8) but I can't get it to go "full screen' like SqueezePlayer and other than the joggler and original skin the navigation buttons are missing (other than off/on) so I can't navigate around.
