    Spotty errors on desktop / RDP?

    I use RDP a lot on the squeezebox server. Every time I log in there's a dozen or so errors on my screen related to spotty. Music seems to play just fine, so if something is crashing it appears to relaunch just fine with no ill effects. I usually just click "ok" through all the errors and ignore them.

    Any ideas? Does it have anything to do with redirected audio because of RDP?

    Either way, thanks so much for keeping spotty up to date. I use it daily.

    I don't think so. Spotty doesn't touch the system's audio output. If you
    sat in front of that computer and logged in locally, wouldn't you see
    the same messages?

    It's very possible I would get the same error locally. However I do not use it locally often so I couldn't say. I am attaching the error I get. Again, this doesn't seem to interrupt actual performance, the spotify stream seems to play just fine. But the errors only produce when spotify is playing on one of the players (a boom in this case). I don't know if this matters, but I have visual studio installed, and pressing cancel brings up a debugger.

    It's always worth checking server.log for any hints...

    Are you using my test repository?

    I don't know what happened during the upgrade, but i wiped out LMS and taskmgr forced end task to spotty.exe to close it. Then I reinstalled and then installed spotty. the plugin came in just fine. My guess is a reboot would have solved my problem... (but who reboots ever!?)

    To give more info on the spotty.exe errors, I noticed on reinstall and reconfiguring the spotty that when i tried setting up with the wrong password, the minute I clicked save on the wrong password, the similar spotty error box came up. When i finally submitted the right password it didn't happen.

    This might be specific to my machine since I have .net debugging tools installed. Maybe not. No idea. Win 10 64

    Mind you the plugin appears to work very well. so I don't mind it too much. But the popup can get annoying at times if the wife is listening to music in the other room while i work...

    I am using whatever repository is included in the default list on LMS. If there's a newer repository to use I can certainly give it a try.
