    18-9 nightly crashes on XP

    I was running fine on 14-9 nightly. I upgraded to the 18-9 nightly just now. SlimServer started up fine. Then I followed my usual initialization routine by going to the Plugin page and disable iTunes. SlimServer crashed as soon as I clicked the Change button. I have not even started connecting to SB2 yet. I repeated this several times and the same happened consistently. It is 100% reproducible.

    Then I installed the 17-9 nightly. It worked ok so far. I was in a hurry so I did collect any log on 18-9. I try out new nightly every week or so. I will collect logs if I do see the same crashes in future nightly.

    In short,

    14-9 - OK
    18-9 - Crashed when trying to disable iTunes plugin. I have not tried. It could crash even when making changes other than iTunes plugin.
    17-9 - OK

    As soon as I click on any change button on the plugin page slimserver crashes (without any Windows error message, it simply stops). Until now I tried the change buttons of the settings for the random Mix plugin, for the rescan music library plugin and for changing "load plugins on-the-fly" to "load plugins at startup only". This happens (at least) since the 2005/09/18 nightly and also with the 2005/09/19 nightly.

    So I am not the only one experiencing this problem. Given that 'dip' reported the same with 19-9 nightly, I am afraid if this bug is not fixed then 17-9 nightly could be the latest working nightly for WinXP. Shall we open a bug on this? There is little info we can offer about this bug.

    the actual crash message from the log or event viewer, as always, would
    help.

    I've found a crasher due to the RandomPlay plugin, which crashes on a
    setup change on the plugins page. I've committed a fix, so update svn
    or grab the next nightly build.

    for a manual fix, open Plugins/RandomPlay/Plugin.pm. change line 302
    to:
    'validate' => \&Slim::Web::Setup::validateTrueFalse,

    -kdf

    The entry in the Windows event viewer reads (with English translations):

    Fehler(=error) 19.09.2005 17:56:51 Application Keine(=none) 0 Nicht zutreffend(not applicable) WIN145

    Is that helpful? Which debug checkboxes should be set in the server settings to create a helpful log file?
