    A working 6.0?

    Being unable to get a version that integrates MusicMagic on my linux
    PC I have downloaded the latest Windows version. It installs and runs
    OK but does not scan my music directories.
    The error is below. I have tried it on two machines, one with the disks
    local and one across the network. I have tried UNC paths and drive
    letters. It will accept a folder on C:
    Any ideas?


    The server is now rescanning your Music Library.

    New value for Playlists Folder rejected:
    Oops - "\\MServer\Temp\Playlists" doesn't seem to be a valid directory.
    Try again.
    New value for Music Folder rejected:

    Oops - "\\MServer\MP3" doesn't seem to be a valid directory. Try
    again.

    Are you running SlimServer as a service under Windows? I believe
    that Windows doesn't give services permissions to access network
    shares by default.

    Try running SlimServer as a user application to test if this is
    the problem or not. If SlimServer can then see the music then it
    almost certainly is. To fix it you'll need to adjust permissions
    in Windows to give the service access to network shares. I don't
    know how to do this, but there have been several posts on it in
    the past so you might find an answer with some searching on gmane.
