    slimserver startup question (windows)

    What is the proper order of the operations necessary to get slimserver up & running? (I'm running win2k, but I'd be happy with a winXp answer.)

    As far as I can tell, the 2 services get started (SlimServer & SlimServerMySQL), and then slimtray gets run by existing in StartMenu\Programs\Startup.

    I'm trying to create a scheduled task that stops SS, then restarts it.

    Here's what I have:
    -------------------------------
    net stop SlimServerMySQL
    net stop SlimServer >> cycle.txt

    ping -w 1000 1.1.1.1 -n 3 1> NUL

    net start SlimServerMySQL
    net start SlimServer
    --------------------------------

    This works if I run it from the cmd line, but sometimes fails if I put it in a scheduled bat file.
    The failure is that SlimServer won't start, and I can't find any logs that tell me why.

    Anybody got info on a reliable set of ops I can run from a scheduled bat file?

    thanks!

    What are you trying to do? Just stop and restart SlimServer?

    net stop SlimServer
    net start SlimServer
