Hi all (especially the windows users among you :-),

My family liked my music server - now they got one too.
Running on WinXP (yeah, I know... no, linux is no option, I don't want
to answer support calls for the next eight months :-).

It basically works fine, but has the problem to run in a visible shell
window. No problem, I thought - let's use windows-included srvany.exe
and run it as a service.

No way. I could run anything I wanted as a service - except GNUmp3d.

Did any of you succeed in doing this?

Oh - and if someone knows how to avoid those random lockups making it
necessary to restart GNUmp3d, go ahead and tell me.
I'd love to put my homebrewn watchdog script out of business :-)


PS: Yeah, I know I could use the program mentioned in the howto on - but I'd prefer not to use external software when an
    on-board-tool should do the trick.
