    itunes playlist causes V5.0 to refuse to play

    I am having the same problems as zanbo in getting the server to start
    without a password as it assumes no password means do not run at
    startup. Anyone have any ideas?

    Also, is there a way to have the server running as a system service
    without having to log on, as in previous versions?

    Thanks!
    Craig.

    Try this before you downgrade:

    itunes playlist causes V5.0 to refuse to play

    We'll be fixing this in the next release.

    In the mean time, you can install the service from the command line:

    cd C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server

    slimsvc.exe -install auto
    net start slimsvc

    Should do it. It will be running under the System account. If you
    want to run it under another account, open Control Panels ->
    Administrative Tools -> Services
    and find SlimServer. Then right-click and get properties and edit the
    Log On tab.
