    5.0.1 works...5.0.3 (12/29 & prior) doesn't on Windows2000 Server...please help.

    Dean

    Thanks for responding...

    I'm using the following directory.

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Music


    which is the same as for 5.0.1 Interesting, may not
    be relevant, but when I reinstall 5.0.1 it retains the
    original directory settings but when I install 5.0.3
    it defaults to iTunes (yes I do have the itunes xml in
    that directory).

    I can recreate this over and over again, simply
    uninstall 5.0.1 and install 5.0.3 and back to 5.0.1.
    5.0.3 doesn't work, 5.0.1 does every time.

    Thoughts....is there any logging that I can turn on to
    help debug?

    ....the slimsvc will not work on either version though!

    HI James,

    5.0.3 does try harder to turn on iTunes, but you should be able to turn
    it off.

    I suggest starting the slim.exe from the command line and with the
    following options:

    slim.exe --d_scan --d_info

    Then try disabling itunes and let us know what the output is towards
    the end.
