some posts back in this thread i think or in another completely different thread i said what to do for running the script.
but in short again so you can find it eaiser the following is what i found out about your issue.
now on winxp pro it will also refuse to play the playlist
this is because the script to start monkey and the playlist need to be done at different times.
when you start the playlist with the script in task scheduler you must already have mediamonkey started
because of the time it takes to start monkey if the time to play the list is the same you have the script set
to start at, monkey can't see the timer to start the playing list. so he sits there.
its like when you wake up you can't hardly see the light switch. monkey can't see the command to play.
so start mediamonkey.exe by a task job in windows scheduler at about 5 minutes before you want the playlist to start.
then you start the script of pekes to start the playlist after monkey has been woke up and is sitting there.
now if that will work on win7 i don't know but it should as it makes logical sense.
so that should fix your monkey starting but not playing issue.
also you should stop medimonkey with the task scheduler if possible after you change to a playlist of blank songs, which are just silent files recorded with about 10 seconds of time so that monkey unloads the songs and keeps them in the hd. while he plays the silent files you can close him with that end monkey script posted in this thread. that way only the silent song files are taking a chance of being messed up.
