    itunes update error

    Hi,

    I'm trying to get the itunesupdate plugin working.

    My setup:
    - W2K3 server running Slimserver 6.1.1 and iTunesUpdate 1.3.4
    - Itunes runs on a Windows XP machine, but itunes library is stored on the W2K3-server.
    - Slimserver uses iTunes (works fine).
    - iTunesUpdate Direct Updates are off.

    The iTunesUpdate does write an itunes_hist.txt file, which looks normal, as far as i can tell.

    Running the updateituneswin.pl script produces the following messages for each of the played files.

    ==logTrackToiTunesWin()
    Attempting to make connection to iTunes...
    Win32::OLE(0.1702) error 0x800401f3: "Invalid class string"
    Win32::OLE(0.1702) error 0x800401f3: "Invalid class string"
    Failed to launch iTunes through OLE!!!
    Track not found in iTunes

    Any ideas to get itunesupdate working would be greatly appreciated.

    Arjen,
    Are you running the script on the machine with iTunes installed?

    No, I'm running it on the same machine that runs Slimserver. All the iTunes-data is stored there, but iTunes itself isn't installed on this machine.

    Ah.
    You have to run the script on the machine with iTunes as it's going to
    use COM to talk to it directly.

    James,

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    I see the problem, I will try to run it on the other machine.

    This may mean that I have to rethink and rebuild the setup I've got. The idea was to be able to run the SB2 from the server, without depending on the itunes-box.

    That should be fine.

    Just make sure the iTunes Update history file is saved somewhere on the
    server that the XP machine can access, then run the updates whenever you
    have iTunes open or the XP machine on.

    No updates while the XP box is off indeed, but all you'll be missing is
    updating of the iTunes smart playlists I guess.
