Thanks for the help. I used to think I was fairly technically
competent... I can't even get your cmd line advise to run. When I type
"c:\program files\slimserver\server\slim.exe" --d_source I get the
following message:

2004-11-20 07:57:54.0419 Problem: There is already another copy of the
SlimServer running on this machine. (Unknown error)

I've gone into Task Manager and I don't see any slim.exe processes
running. How do I stop the server?
